Entered a cording tct act of congress, in tlie year 1874 

By Cline and Mc Haffie. 

in the office of the Librarian of Congress, at Washington. 



IN CONGRESS, TUESDAY, JULY 4, 1776. 

Agreeably to the order of the day, the Congress resolved 
itselfinto a committee of the whole, to take into their further 
consideration the Declaration; and, after some time, the Pres- 
ident resumed the chair, and Mr, Harrison reported that the 
committee had agreed to a declaration, which they desired 
him to report. (The committee consisted of Jefferson, Frank- 
lin, John Adams, ^' ^riuan, and R. R. Livingston.) 

The Declaration being read, was agreed to, as follows: 

A DECLARATION 

BY THE REPRESENTATIVES OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, 
IN CONGRESS ASSEMBLED. 

When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary 
for one people to dissolve the political bands which have con- 
nected them with another, and to assume among the powers 
of the earth the separate and equal station to which the laws 
of nature and of nature's God entitle them, a decent respect 
for the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare 
the causes which impel them to the separation. 

We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are 
created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with 
certain inalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, 
and the pursuit of happiness. That, to secure these rights, 
governments are instituted among men, deriving their just 
powers from the consent of the governed ; that, whenever any 
form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is 
the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute 
a new government, laying its foundation on such principles, 

{3> 



DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE. 



and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem 
most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, 
indeed, will dictate that governments long established should 
not be changed for light and transient causes ; and, accordingly, 
ail experience hatli shown that mankind are more disposed to 
suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by 
abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But, 
when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invari- 
ably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under 
absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their dutj'", to throw 
off such government, and to provide new guards for their future 
security. Such has been the patient sufferance of these colo- 
nies, and such is now the necessity which constrains them to 
alter their former systems of government. The history of the 
present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries 
and usurpations, all having, in direct object, the establishment 
of an absolute tyranny over these States. To prove this, let 
facts be submitted to a candid world : 

lie has refused his assent to laws the most wholesome and 
necessary for the public good. 

lie has forbidden his Governors to pass laws of immediate 
and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation 
till his assent should be obtained ; and, when so suspended, he 
has uiteily neglected to attend to them. 

He has refused to pass other laws for the accommodation of 
large districts of people unless those people would relinquish 
the right of representation in the legislature — a right inestim- 
able to them, and formidable to tyrants only. 

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, 
uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of th sir public 
records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance 
vi'ith his measures. 

He has dissolved representative hou es repeatedly for oppos- 
ing, with manly firmness, his invasions on the rights of the 
people. 

He has refused, for a long time after such dissolutions, to 
cause others to be elected ; whereby the legislative powers, 
incapable of annihilation, have returned to the people at large 
for their exercise, the State remaining, in the meantime, ex- 



DECLARATION OF INDKPENDENCE. 



posed to all the danger of invasion from without, and convul- 
sions wiUiin. 

Ue has endeavored to prevent the population of these 
States ; for that purpose, obstructing the laws for naturaliza- 
tion of forei: ner^: ; refusing to pass others to encourage their 
emigration hither, and raising the conditions of new appro- 
priations of lands. 

He has obstructed the administration of justice, by refus- 
ing his assent to laws for establishing judiciary powers. 

He has made judges dependent on his will alone for the 
tenure of their offices and the amount and payment of their 
salaries. 

He has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither 
swarms of officers to harass our people, and eat out their sub- 
stances. 

He has kept among us, in times of peace, standing armies, 
without the consent of our legislature. 

He has affected to render the military independent of, and 
superior to, the civil power. 

Ele has comnned, with others, to subject us to a jurisdiction 
foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; 
giving his assent to their acts of pretended legislation: 

For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us; 

For protecting tham, by mock trial, from punishment, for 
any murders which they should commit on the inhabitants of 
these States ; 

For cutting off our trade with all parts of the world ; 

For imposing taxes on us without our consent; 

For depriving us, in many cases, of the benefits of trial by 
jury. 

For transporting us beyond seas to be tried for pretended 
offenses. 

For abolishing the free system of English laws in a neigh- 
boring province, establishing therein an arbitary government, 
and enlarging its boundaries, so as to render it at once an ex- 
ample and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute 
rule into these coloi)ies ; 

For taking away our charters, abolishing our most valuable 



6 DECIARATION OF INDEPENDENCE. 



laws, and altering, fundamentally, the powers of our govern- 
ments ; 

For suspending our own legislature, and declaring them- 
selves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases 
whal soever. 

Ho has abdicated government here, by declaring us out of 
his protection, and waging war against us. 

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coast, burnt our 
towns, and destroyed the lives of our people. 

He is, at this time, transporting large armies of foreign mer- 
cenaries to complete the works of death, desolation, and ty- 
ranny, already begun, with circumstances of cruelty and per- 
fidy scarcely par;illeled in the most barbarous ages, and totally 
unworthy the head of a civilized nation. 

He has constrained our fellow-citizens, taken captive on the 
high seas, to bear arms against their country, to become the 
executioners of their friends and brethren, or to fall themselves 
by (heir hands. 

lie has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has 
endeavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the 
merciless Indian savages, whose known rule of warfare is an 
undistinguished destruction, of all ages, sexes, and conditions. 

In every stage of these oppressions, we have petitioned for 
redress, in the most humble terms ; our repeated petitions have 
been answered only by repeated injury. A prince, whose 
charncler is thus marked by every act which may define a ty- 
rant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people. 

Nor have we been wanting in attention to our British breth- 
ren. We have warned them, from time to time, of attempts 
made by their legislature (o extend an unwarrantable jurisdic- 
tion over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances 
of our emigralion and settlement here. We have appealed 
to I heir native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured 
them, by (he ties of our common kindred, to disavow the*ie 
usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our connections 
and correspondence. They, too, have been deaf to the voice 
of justice and consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce 
in fche necessity, which denounces our separation, and hold

them, as we hold the rest of mankind, enemies in war — in 
peace, friends. 

We, therefore, the representatives of the UNITED STATES 
OF AMERICA, in GENERAL CONGRESS assembled, ap- 
pealing to the Supreme Judge of the World for the rectitude 
of our intentions, do, in the name, and by the authority of the 
good people of these colonies, solemnly publish and declare, 
That these United Colonies are, and of right ought to be. 
Free and Independent States ; that they are absolved from all 
allegiance to the British crown, and that all political connec- 
tions between them and the State of Great Britain, is, and 
ought to be, totally dissolved; and that, as FREE AND 
INDEPENDENT STATES, they have full power to levy 
war, conclude peace, contract alliances, establish commerce, 
and to do all other acts and things which INDEPENDENT 
STATES may of right do. And for the support of this Declara- 
tion, with a firm reliance on the protection of DIVINE PROV- 
IDENCE, we mutually pledge to each other, our lives, our 
fortunes, and our sacred honor.

he shall sign it; but if not, he shall return it, with his objec- 
tions, to that House in which it shall have originated, who 
shall enter the objections at large on their Journal, and pro- 
ceed to reconsider it. If, after such reconsideration, two- thirds 
of that House shall agree to pass the bill, it shall be sent, to- 
gether with the objections, to the other House, by which it 
shall likewise be reconsidered, and if approved by two-thirds

EMANCIPATION PROCLAMATION. 



Whereas., On the twenty-second day of September, in the 
year of our Lord, one thousand eight hundred and sixty-two, 
a ^proclamation was issued by the President of the United 
States, containing among other things (he following, to-wit : 

That, on the first day of January, in the year of our Lord, 
one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, all persons held 
as slaves within any State, or designated part of a State, the 
people whereof shall then be in rebellion against the United 
States, shall be then, henceforth and forever free, and the 
Executive Government of the United States, including the 
military and naval authorities thereof, will recognize and 
maintain the freedom of such persons, or any of them, in anj'- 
efforts they may make for their actual freedom. 

That the Executive will, on the first day of January afore 
said, by proclamation, designate the States and parts of 
States, if any, in which the people therein respectively shall 
then be in rebellion against the United States, and the fact 
that any State, or the people thereof, shall on that day be in 
good faith represented in the Congress of the United States by 
members chosen thereto, at elections wherein a majorit}'^ of 
the qualified voters of such States shall have participated, 
shall, in the absence of strong countervailing testimony, be 
deemed conclusive that such State and the people thereof are 
not then in rebellion against the United States. 

Now, therefore, I, Abraham Lincoln, President of the 
United States, by virtue of the power in me vested as Com- 
mander-in-Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, 
in time of actual armed rebellion against the authority and 
Government of tbe United States, and as a fit necessary war 
measure for suppressing said rebellion, do, on this first day of 
January, in the year of our Lord, one thousand eight hundred 
and sixty- three, and in accordance with my i3urpose so to do, 
publicly proclaimed for the full period of one hundred days 

(54) 



EMANCIPATION PROCLAMATION. 55 

from the day of the first above-mentioned order, and desig- 
nate, as the States and parts of States wherein the people 
thereof respectively are this day in rebellion againt the 
United States, the following to- wit: Arkansas, Texas, Louisi- 
ana, except the parishes of St. Bernard, Plaquemines, Jeffer- 
son, St. John, St. Charles, St. James, Ascension, Assumption, 
Terre Bonne, Lafourche, St. Mary, St. Martin and Orleans, in- 
cluding the city of New Orleans. Mississippi, Alabama, Flor- 
ida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia, 
except the forty-eight counties designated as West Virginia, 
and also the counties of Berkeley, Accoraac, Northampton. 
Elizabeth City, York, Princess Ann, and Norfolk, including 
the cities of Norfolk and Portsmouth, and which excepted 
parts are, for the present, left precisely as if this proclamation 
were not issued. 

And by virtue of the power, and for the purpose aforesaid, 
I do order and declare that all persons held as slaves within 
said designated States and parts of States are, and hencefor- 
ward, shall be free ; and that the Executive Government of the 
United States, including the military and naval authorities there- 
of, will recognize and maintain the freedom of said persons. 

And I hereby enjoin upon the people so declared to be free 
to abstain from all violence, unless in necessary self-defense ; 
and I recommend to them that, in all cases, when allowed, 
they labor faithfully for reasonable wages. 

And I further declare and make known that such persons of 
suitable condition will be received into the armed service of 
the United States, to garrison forts, positions, stations, and 
other places, and to man vessels of all sorts in said service. 

And upon this, sincerely believed to be an act of justice, 
warranted by the Constitution upon military necessity, I in- 
voke the considerate judgment of mankind and the gracious 
favor f)f Almighty God. 

In witness whereof 1 have hereunto set my hand and caused 
the seal of the United States to be affixed. 

Done at the City of Washington, this first day of January,

jSEAL>- and sixty-three, and of the Independence of the Unit- 

^^^ — ed States of America the eighty-seventh.

POLITICAL PLATFORMS. 



PLATFORM OF THE BRECKINRIDGE PARTY OF 1860. 

Resolved^ That the platform adopted by the Democratic 
party at Cincinnati be affirmed, with the following explana- 
tory resolutions : 

1. That the government of a territory organized by an act 
of Congress is provisional and temporary, and during its exis- 
tence all citizens of the United States have an equal right to 
settle with their property in the territory, without their rights, 
either in person or property, bemg destroyed by congressional 
or territorial legislation. 

2. That it is the duty of the Federal Government, in all its 
departments, to protect the rights of persons and property in 
the territories, and wherever else its constitutional authority 
extends. 

3. That when the settlers in a territory, having an adequate 
population, form a State Constitution, the right of sovereignty 
commences, and being consummated by their admission into 
the Union, they stand on an equality with the people of other 
States, and a State thus organized ought to be admitted into- 
the Federal Union, whether its constitution prohibits or rec- 
ognizes the institution of slavery. 

4. That the Democratic party are in favor of the acquisi- 
tion of Cuba, on such terms as shall be honorable to ourselves 
and just to Spain, at the earliest practicable moment. 

5. That the enactments of State Legislatures to defeat the 
faithful execution of the Fugitive Slave Law are hostile in 
character, subversive of the Constitution, and revolutionary 
in their effect. 

6. That the Democracy of the United States recognize it as 
an imperative duty of the government to protect the natural- 

(56) 



POLITICAL PLATFORMS. 57 



ized citizen in all his rights, whether in home or in foreign 
lands, to the same extent as its native born citizens. 

Whereas, One of the greatest necessities of the age, in a 
political, commercial, postal, and military point of view, is a 
speedy communication between the Pacific and Atlanlic, 
coasts ; therefore, be it resolved, 

7. That the National Democratic party do hereby pledge 
themselves to use every means in their power to secure the 
passage of some bill, to the extent of the Constitutional au- 
thority by Congress, for the construction of a railroad to the 
Pacific Ocean at the earliest practicable moment. 



PLATFOEM OF THE DOUGLAS PARTY OF 1860. 

Resolved^ That we, the Democracy of the Union in Conven- 
tion assembled, hereby declare our affirmation of (he resolu- 
tions unanimously adopted and declared as a platform of prin- 
ciples by the Democratic Convention at Cincinnati, in the 
year 1856, believing that Democraiic principles are unchanga- 
ble in their nature when applied to the same subject matter, 
and we recommend as our only further resolutions the follow- 
ing: 

That inasmuch as differences of opinion exist in the Demo- 
cratic party as to the nature and extent of the powers of a 
Territorial Legislature, and as to the powers and duties of Con- 
gress, under the Constitution of the United States, over the 
institution of slavery in the territories ; 

Resolved., That the Democratic party will abide by the de- 
cision of the Supreme Court of the United States over the in- 
stitution of slavery in the territories. 

Resolved^ That it is the duty of the United States to afford 
ample and complete protection to all its citizens, at home or 
abroad, and whether native or foreign born. 

Resolved., That one of the necessities of the age, in a mili- 
tary, commercial, and postal point of view, is a speedy com- 
munication between the Atlantic and Pacific Slates, and the 
Democratic party pledge such constitutional enactment as 
will insure the construction of a railroad to the Pacific coast 
at the earliest practical period. 



58 POLITICAL PLATFORMS. 

Resolved, That the Democratic party are in favor of the ac- 
quisition of the Island of Cuba, on such terms as shall be hon- 
orable to ourselves and just to Spain. 

licsolved. That the enactments of State Legislatures to de- 
feat the faithful execution of the Fugitive Slave Law are hos- 
tile in character, subversive to the Constitution, and revolu- 
tionary in their eifect. 

.Resolved^ That it is in accordance with the Cincinnati Plat- 
form, that during the existence of Territorial Governments, 
the measure of restriction, whatever it may be, imposed by 
the Federal Constitution on the power of the Territorial Leg- 
islature over the subject of the domestic relations, as the same 
has been or shall hereafter be decided by the Supreme Court 
of the United States, should be respected by all good citizens, 
and enforced with promptness and fidelity by every branch of 
the General Government. 



THE REPUBLICAN PLATFORM OF 1860. 

Resolved, That we, the delegated representatives of the Re- 
publican electors of the United States, in Convention assem- 
bled, in the discharge of the duty we owe to our constituents 
and our country, unite in the following resolutions : 

1. That the history of the nation during the last four years 
has fully established the propriety and necessity of the organ- 
ization and perpetuation of the Kepublican party, and that the 
causes which called it into existence are permanent in their 
nature, and now, more than ever, demand its peaceful and 
constitutional triumph. 

2. That the maintenance of the principles promulgated in 
the Declaration of Independence, and embodied in the Federal 
Constitution, that "all men are created equal; that they are 
endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, 
among which are those of life, liberty and the pursuit of happi- 
ness, and that Governments are instituted among men to 
secure the enjoyment of these rights, deriving their just power 
from the consent of the governed" — are essential to the pres- 
ervation of our republican institutions, and that the Federal 
Constitution, the rights of the States, and the union of the 
States, must and shall be preserved. 



POLITICAL PLATFORMS. 59 



3. That to the union of the States this nation owes its unpre- 
cedented increase in population, its surprising developments 
of material resources ; its rapid augmentation of wealth ; its 
happiness at home and its honor abroad; and v/e hold in 
abhorrence all schemes for disunion, come from whatever 
source they may; and we congratulate the country that no 
riex)ublican member of Congress has uttered or countenanced 
the threats of disunion as often made by the Democratic mem- 
bers of Congress, without rebuke and with applause from their 
political associates ; and we denounce those threats of disunion 
in case of a popular overthrow of their ascendency, as denying 
the vital principles of a free Government, and as an avowal of 
contemplated treason which it is the imperative duty of an 
indignant people sternly to rebuke and forever silence. 

4. That the maintenance inviolate, of the rights of the 
States, and especially of each State, to order and control its 
own domestic institutions according to its own judgment ex- 
clusively, is essential to that balance of power on wbich the 
j)erfection and endurance of our political fabric depends; and 
we denounce the lawless invasion by armed force of the soil 
of any State or Territory, no matter under what pretext, as one 
of the gravest of crimes. 

5. That the present Democratic Administration has far ex- 
ceeded our worst apprehensions in the measureless subserviency 
to the exactions of a sectional interest, as esj)ecially evinced 
in its desperate exertions to force the infamous Lecompton 
Constitution upon the protesting people of Kansas, construing 
the relation between master and servant to involve an unqual- 
ified property in x^ersons; in its attempted enforcement every 
where, on land and sea, through the intervention of Congress 
and of the Federal Courts, of the extreme pretensions of a 
purely local interest; and in its general and unvarying abuse 
of the power entrusted to it by a confiding people. 

0, Tiiat the people justly view with alarm the reckless ex- 
travagance which pervades every department of the Federal 
Government. That a return to right economy and accounta- 
bility is indispensible to arrest the plunder of the public 
treasury by favored partisans, while the recent startling devel- 
opments of frauds and corruption at the Federal metropolis 
show that an entire change of administration is imperatively 
demanded. 



60 POLITICAL PLATFORilS. 



7. That the new do^ma that the Constitution of its own 
force carries slavery into any or all the Territories of the 
United States, is a dangerous political heresy, at variance with 
the explicit provisions of that instrument itself, with cotempo- 
raneous exposition, and with legislative and judicial prece- 
denls, that it is revolutionary in its tendency and subversive 
of the peace and harmony of the country. 

5. That the nominal condition of all the territory of the 
United States is that of freedom; that as our Republican fath- 
ers, when they had abolished slavery in all our national terri- 
tory, ordained that no person should be deprived of life, liberty 
o; property without due process of law, it becomes our duty 
hy legislation, whenever such legislation is necessary, to 
maintain this provision of the Constitution against all attempts 
to violate it ; and we deny the authority of Congress, or a Ter- 
ritorial Legislature, or of any individual, to give legal existence 
to slavery in any Territory of the United States. 

9. That we brand the recent re-ox)ening of the African Slave 
Trade, under the cover of our national flag, aided by perver- 
sions of judicial power, as a crime iigainst humanity, and a 
burning shame to our country and age; and we call upon 
Congress to take prompt and efficient measures for the total 
and final suppression of that exercrable traffic. 

10. That in the recent vetoes by their Federal Governors 
of the acts of the Legislatures of Kansas and Nebraska, pro- 
hibiting slavery in these Territories, we find a practical 
illustration of the boasted Democratic principles of non-inter- 
vention and Popular Sovereignty, embodied in the Kansas- 
Nebraska bill, and a demonstration of the deception and fraud 
involved therein. 

11. That Kansas should, of right, be immediately admitted 
as a State under the Constitution recently formed and adopted 
by her people, and accepted by the House of Representatives. 

12. That while providing revenue for the support of the 
General Government, by duties upon imports, sound policy 
requires such an adjustment of these imports as to encourage 
the development of the industrial interests of the whole 
country, and we commend that policy of National Exchange 
which secures to the working men liberal wages, agriculture 
remunerative prices, to merchants and manufacturers an ade- 



POLITICAL PLATFOKMS. 61 



quale reward for their skill, labor and enterprise, and to the 
nation commercial prosperity and independence. 

13. That we protest against any sale or alienation to others 
of the public lands held by actual settlers, and against any 
view of the free homestead policy, which regards the settlers 
as paupers or suppliants for public bounty, and we demand 
the passage by Congress of the complete and satisfactory 
homestead measure which has already passed the House. 

14. That the National Republican party is opposed to any 
change in our naturalization laws, or any State Legislation, by 
which the rights of citizenship hitherto accorded to immigrants 
from foreign lands shall be abridged or impaired, and in favor 
of giving a full and efficient protection to the rights of all 
classes of citizens, whether native or naturalized, both at 
home and abroad. 

15. Tbat appropriations by Congress for river and harbor 
improvements of a national character, is required for the ac- 
<3ommodation and security of an existing commerce, or au- 
thorized by the Constitution and justified by the obligation 
of the Government to protect the lives and property of its 
citizens. 

16. Tliat a railroad to the Pacific ocean is imperatively de- 
manded by the interests of the whole country ; and that the 
Federal Government ought to render immediate and efficient 
aid in its construction, and that preliminary thereto, a daily 
overland mail should be promptly established. 

17. Finally, having thus set forth our distinctive principles 
and views, we invite the co-operation of all citizens, however 
differing in other questions, who substantially agree with us, 
in their afiirmance and support. 



PLATFORM OF THE NATIONAL CONSTITUTIONAL PARTY OF 

1860. 

The Union, the Constitution and the Laws. 



62 POLITICAL PLATFOJRMS. 

UNION PLATFORM, ADOPTED AT BALTIMORE, JUNE 8, 1864. 

Resolved^ That it is the highest duty of every American 
citizen to maintain against all its enemies, the integrity of the 
Union, and the paramount authority of the Constitution and 
laws of the United States, and that, laying all political opin- 
ions aside, we pledge ourselves, as Union men, animated by a 
common sentiment, and aiming at a common object, to do 
everything in our power to aid the Government in quelling, 
by force of arms, the rebellion now raging against its author- 
ity, and bringing to the punishment due to their crimes, the 
rebels and traitors arrayed against it. 

Resolved^ That we approve the determination of the Gov- 
ernment of the United States not to compromise with rebels 
or to offer any terms of peace, except such as may be based 
upon an unconditional surrender of their hostility, &c., and a 
return to their just allegiance to the Constitution and laws of 
the United Slates, and that we call upon the Government to 
maintain this position, and to ijrosecute the war with the ut- 
most possible vigor to the complete suppression of the rebel- 
lion, in full reliance upon the self-sacriiices, the patriotism, 
the heroic valor, and the undying devotion of the American 
people to their country and its free institutions. 

Resolved^ That slavery was the cause, and now constitutes 
the strength of the rebellion, and that as it mui^^t be always 
and everywhere hostile to the principles of Republican Gov- 
ernments, justice and the national safety demand its utter and 
complete extirpation from the soil of the Republic, and that 
we uphold and maintain the acts and proclamations by which 
the Government, in its own defence, has aimed a death blow 
at this gigantic evil. We are in favor, furthermore, of such 
an amendment to the Constitution, to be made bj'' the people 
in conformit3^ with its provisions, as shall terminate and for- 
ever prohibit the existence of slavery within the limits of the 
jurisdiction of the United States. 

Resolved^ That the thanks of the American people are due 
to the soldiers and sailors of the army and navy, who have 
periled their lives in defence of their country, and in vindi- 
cation of the honor of the flag ; that the nation owes them 
some permanent recognition of their patriotism and their 
valor, and ample and permanent provision for those of their 
survivors who have received disabling and honorable wounds 



POLITICAL PLATFORMS. 63 

in the service of their coiuitry, and that the memories of those 
who have fallen in its defense, shall be held in grateful and 
everlasting remembrance. 

Resolved., That we approve and applaud the political wis- 
dom, the unselfish patriotism and unswerving fidelity to the 
Constitution and the principles of American L'berty with 
which Abraham Lincoln has discharged, under circumstances 
of unparalelled difficuly, the great duties and responsibilities 
of the Presidential office; that we approve and endorse, as 
demanded by the emergency and essential to the preservation 
of the nation, and as within the Conslitution, the measures 
and acts which he has adopted to defend the nation against its 
open and secret foes; especially the Proclamation of Emanci- 
pation, and the employment, as Union soldiers, of men hereto- 
fore held in slavery, and that we have full confidence in his 
determination to carry these and all other Constitutional 
measures, essential to the salvation of the country, into full 
and complete effect. 

Resolved^ That we deem it essential to the general welfare, 
that harmony should prevail in the national councils, and we 
regard as worthy of public confidence and official (rust those 
only who cordially endorse the principles proclaimed in these 
resolutions, and which should characterize the administration 
of the Government. 

Resolved., That the Government owes to all men employed 
in its armies, without distinction of color, the full protection of 
the laws of war, and any violation of these laws and of the 
usages of civilized nations in the time of war, by the rebels 
now in arms, should be made the subject of full and prompt 
redress. 

Resolved., That the foreign immigration, which in the past 
has added so much to the wealth and development of resources 
and increase of power to this nation, the asylum of the oppress- 
ed of all nations, should be fostered and encouraged by a 
liberal and just policy. 

Resolved., That we are in favor of the speedy construction of 
the railroad to the Pacific. 

Resolved., That the national faith is pledged for the redemp- 
tion of the public debt and must be kept inviolate; and that 
for this purpose we recommend economj'- and rigid responsi- 
bilities in the public expenditures, and a vigorous and just 



<64 POLITICAL PLATFORMS. 

system of taxation ; that it is the duty of every loyal State to 
sustain the use of the national currency. 

Besolved, That we approve the position taken by the Gov- 
ernment, that the people of the United States can never regard 
with indifference the attempt of European power to overthrow 
by forcOj or to supplant by fraud, the institutions of any Re- 
publican government on the Western Continent, and that they 
will view with extreme jealousy, as menacing to the peace and 
independence of ihis our country, the efforts of any such power 
to obtain new footholds for monarchial governments sustained 
by a foreign military force in near proximity to the United 
States. 



FREMONT PLATFORM, ADOPTED AT CLEVELAND.. MAY 31, 1864. 

1. That the Federal Union must be preserved. 

2. That the Constitution and laws of the United States 
must be observed and obeyed. 

3. That the rebellion must be suppressed by the force of 
arms, and without compromise. 

4. That the rights of Free Speech, Free Press, and the 
Habeas Corpus must be held inviolate, save in districts where 
martial law has been proclaimed. 

5. That the rebellion has destroyed slavery, and the Fed- 
eral Constitution should be amended to prohibit its re-estab- 
lishment. 

6. That the right for asylum, except for crime, and subject 
to law, is a recognized principle — a principle of American lib- 
erty ; that any violation of it must not be overlooked, and 
must not go unrebuked. 

7. That the National policy known as the Monroe doctrine 
has become a recognized principle, and that the establishment 
of an anti-republican form of government on this continent by 
a foreign power can not be tolerated. 

8. That the gratitude and support of the nation is due to 
the faithful soldiers, and the earnest leaders of the Union army 
and navy, for their heroic achievements and valor in defense 
of our imperiled country and of civil liberty. 

9. That the one term policy for the Presidency adopted by 



POLITICAL PLATFORMS. 65 



the people is strengthened by the existing crisis, and shall be 
maintained by constitutional amendments. 

10. That the Constitution shall be so amended that the 
President and Vice President shall be elected by a direct vote 
of the people. 

11. That the reconstruction of the rebellious States belongs 
to the people through their representatives in Congress, and 
not to the Executive. 

12. That the confiscation of the lands of the rebels and 
their distribution among the soldiers and actual settlers is a 
measure of justice ; that integrity and economy are demanded 
at all times in the measures of the government, and that now 
the want of this is criminal. 



NATIONAL DEMOCRATIC PLATFORM OF 1864. 

Resolved^ That in the future, as in the past, we will adiiere 
with unswerving fidelity to the Union under the Constitution 
as the only solid foundation of our strength, security and hap- 
piness as a people, and as a framework of government equally 
conducive to the welfare and prosperity of all the States, both 
ISIorthern and Southern. 

Resolved, That this Convention does explicitly declare, as 
the sense of the American people, that after four years of fail- 
ure to restore the Union by experiment of war, during which, 
under the pretence of military necessity or war power higher 
than the Constitution, the Constitution itself has been disre- 
garded in every part, and public liberty and private right alike 
trodden down, and the material prosperity of the country es- 
sentially impaired, justice, humanity, liberty and the public 
welfare demand that immediate efforts be made for a cessation 
of hostilities with a view to an ultimate convention of the 
States, or other peaceable means, to the end that at the earli- 
est practical moment peace may be restored on the basis of 
the Federal Union of the States. 

Resolved^ That the direct interference of the military au- 
thorities of the United States in the recent elections held in 
Kentucky, Maryland, Missouri and Delaware was a shameful 



66 POLITICAL PLATFORMS. 



violation of the Constitution, and a repetition of such acts in 
the approaching election will be held as revolutionary, and re- 
sisted with all the means and power under our control. 

Resolved^ That the aim and object of the Democratic party 
is to preserve the Federal Union and the rights of the States 
unimpaired, and they hereby declare that they consider that 
the administrative usurpation of extraordinary and dangerous 
powers not granted by the Constitution, the subversion of the 
civil by military law in States not in insurrection, the arbi- 
trary military arrest, imprisonment, trial and sentence of 
American citizens in States where the civil law exists in full 
force, the suppression of freedom of speech and of the press, 
the denial of the right of asylum, the open and avowed right 
of disregard of State rights, the employment of unusual test 
oaths, and the interference with, and denial of the right of the 
people to bear arras in their defense, is calculated to prevent 
a restoration of the Union and a perpetuation of the Govern- 
ment deriving its just powers from the consent of the gov- 
erned. 

Resolved^ That the shameful disregard of the Administra- 
tion to its duty in respect to our fellow-citizens who now are, 
and long have been, prisoners of war in a suffering condition, 
deserves the severest reprobation on the score alike of public 
policy and common humanity. 

Resolved, That the sympathy of the Democratic party is 
heartily and earnestly extended to the soldiery of our army 
and sailors of our navy who are and have been in the field and 
on the sea, under the flag of their country, and in the event 
of its attaining power, they will receive all the care, protec- 
tion and regard that the brave soldiers and sailors of the Re- 
public have so nobly earned. 



THE CHICAGO PLATFOEM, 1868. 

The following is the platform as adopted: 

The National Republican Party of the United States, as- 
sembled in National Convention, in the city of Chicago, on 
the 20th day of May, 186S, make the following declaration of 
principles: 

1. We congratulate the country on the assured success of 



POLITICAL PLATFORMS. 67 

the reconstruction policy of Congress, as evinced by the 
adoption, in the majority of the States lately in rebellion, of 
constitutions securing equal civil and political rights to all; 
and it is the duty of the Government to sustain those consti- 
tutions and to prevent the people of such States from bein^ 
remitted to a state of anarchy. 

2. The guarantee by Congress of equal suffrage to all loyal 
men at the South was demanded by every consideration of 
public safety, of gratitude, and of justice, and must be main- 
tained, while the question of suffrage in all the loyal States 
properly belongs to the people of those States. 

3. We denounce all forms of repudiation as a national 
crime, and the national honor requires the payment of the 
public indebtedness in the utmost good faith to all creditors 
at home and abroad, not only according to the letter but the 
spirit of the laws under which it was contracted. 

4. It is due to the labor of the nation that taxation should 
be equalized and reduced as rapidly as the national faith will 
permit. 

5. The national debt, contracted as it has been for the 
preservation of the Union for all time to come, should be ex- 
tended over a fair period for redemption; and it is the duty of 
Congress to reduce the rate of interest thereon whenever it 
can be honestly done. 

6. That the best policy to diminish our burden of debt is 
to so improve our credit that capitalists will seek to loan us 
money at lower rates of interest than we now pay, and must 
continue to pay, so long as repudiation, partial or total, open 
or covert, is threatened or suspected. 

7. The Government of the United States should be admin- 
istered with the strictest economy, and the corruptions which 
have been so shamefully nursed and fostered by Andrew 
JouNSON call loudly for radical reform. 

8. We professedly deplore the untimely and tragic death 
of Abraham Lincoln, and regret the accession of Anduew 
Johnson to the Presidency, who has acted treacherously to 
the people who elected him, and the cause he was pledged to 
support — who has usurped high legislative and judicial func- 
tions — who has refused to execute the laws — who has used his 
high office to induce other officers to ignore and violate the 
laws — who has employed his executive powers to render inse- 



68 POLITICAL PLATFOEMS. 



cure the property, the peace, liberty, and life of the citizen — 
who has abused the pardoning power— who has denounced 
the National Legislature as unconstitutional — persistently and 
corruptly resisted, by every measure in his power, every 
proper attempt at the reconstruction of the States lately in 
rebellion — who has perverted the public patronage into an 
engine of wholesale corruption, and who has been justly im- 
l)e ached for high crimes and misdemeanors, and proi^erly pro- 
nounced guilty thereof by the vote of thirty-five Senators. 

9. The doctrine of Great Britain and other European Pow- 
ers, that because a man is once a subject he is always so, 
must be resisted at every hazard by the United States as a 
relic of the feudal times, not authorized by the law of nations, 
and at war with our national honor and independence. Nat- 
uralized citizens are entitled to be protected in all their 
rights of citizenship as though they were native born ; and 
no citizen of the United States, native or naturalized, must 
be liable to arrest and imprisonment by any foreign power for 
acts done or words spoken in this country; and if so arrested 
and imprisoned it is the duty of the Government to interfere 
in his behalf. 

10. Of all who were faithful in the trials of the late war 
there were none entitled to more especial honor than the 
brave soldiers and seamen who endured the hardships of cam- 
paign and cruise, and imperiled their lives in the service of 
the country. The bounties and pensions provided by the laws 
for these brave defenders of the nation are obligations never 
to be forgotten. The widows and orphans of the gallant 
dead are the wards of the people, a sacred legacy bequeathed 
to the nation's protecting care. 

11. Foreign emigration, which in the past has added so 
much to the wealth, development, and resources and increase 
of power to this nation, the asylum of the oppressed of all 
nations, should be fostered and encouraged by a liberal and 
just iJolicy. 

12. This Convention declares itself in sympathy with all 
the oppressed people which are struggling for their rights. 

The following resolutions were also adopted unanimously, 
and are added to the declaration of principles : 

Resolved^ That we highly commend the spirit of magnan- 
imity and forgiveness with which the men who have served in 



POLITICAL PLATFORMS. 69 



the rebellion, but now frankly and honestly co-opernte with 
us in restoring the peace of the country and reconstructing 
the Southern State governments upon the basis of impartial 
justice and equal rights, are received back into the com- 
munion of the loyal people. And we favor the removal of 
the disqualifications and restrictions placed upon the laie 
rebels in the same measure as the spirit of loyalty will direct, 
and as may be consistent with the safety of the loyal people. 
Resolved^ That we recognize the great principles laid down 
in the immortal Declaration of Independence as the true 
foundation of Democratic government ; and we hail with 
gladness every effort toward making these principles a living 
reality on every inch of American soil. 



DEMOCRATIC PLATFORM OF 1868. 

The Democratic party, in National Convention assem.bied, 
reposing its trust in the intelligence, patriotism, and discrimi- 
nating justice of the people, standing upon the Constitution as 
the founda^tion and limitation of the powers of the Government 
and the guarantee of the liberties of the citizen, and recog- 
nizing the questions of slavery andsecession as having been set- 
tled for all time to come by the war or the voluntary action of 
the Southern States in Constitutional Conventions assembled, 
and never to be revived or re-agitated, do, with the return of 
peace, demand: 

1. The immediate restoration of all the States to their 
rights in the Union under the Constitution of the civil Gov- 
ernment and in the American people. 

2. Amnesty for all past political offenses ; the regulation of 
the elective franchise in the States by their citizens. 

3. Payment of the public debt of the United States as rap- 
idly as practicable, all money drawn from the people by taxa- 
tion, except so much as is requisite for the necessities of the 
Government economically administered being honestly ap- 
plied to such payment, and where the obligations of tho Gov- 
ernment do not expressly state upon their face or the law 
under which they were issued does not provide that they shall 
be paid in coin they ought, in right and justice, be paid in the 
lawful money of the United States. 



70 POLITICAL PLATFORMS. 



4. Equal taxation of every species of property according 
to the value ; reducing Government bonds and other public 
securities. 

5. One currency for the Government and the people, the 
laborer and the office-holder, pensioner and the soldier, the 
producer and the bondholder. 

6. Economy in the administration or the Government ; the 
reduction of the standing army and navy ; the abolition of the 
•Freedmen's Bureau, and all political instrumentalities de- 
signed to secure negrosupremacy; simplification of tlie system 
and discontinuance of inquisitorial modes of assessing and 
collecting internal revenue, that the burden of taxation may 
be equalized and lessened, and the credit of the Government 
and the currency made good ; the repeal of all enactments for 
enrolling the State militia into a national force in time of 
peace ; and a tariff for revenue upon foreign imports and such 
equal taxation under the internal revenue laws as will afford 
incidental protection to domestic manufactures as well, with- 
out impairing the revenue, impose the least burden upon and 
best promote and encourage the great industrial interests of 
the country. 

7. Reform of abuses in the Administration ; the expulsion 
of corrupt men from office ; the abrogation of useless offices ; 
the restoration of the rightful authority to and the independ- 
ence of the Executive and Judicial Departments of the Gov- 
ernment; the subordination of the military to the civil power, 
to the end that the usurpation of Congress and the despotism 
of the sword may cease. 

8. Equal rights and protection for naturalized and native 
born citizens at home and abroad ; the assertion of American 
nationality, which will command the respect of foreign jjowers 
furnish an example and encouragement to people struggling 
for national integrity, constitutional liberty, and individual 
rights ; and the maintenance of the rights of naturalized citi- 
zens against the absolute doctrine of immutable allegiance 
and the claims of foreign powers to punish them for alleged 
crimes committed beyond their jurisdiction. In demanding 
these measures and reforms, we airaign the radical party for 
its disregard of right and the unparalleled oppression and 
Cyranny which have marked its career, alter the most solemn 
and unanimous pledge of both houses of Congress to prose- 



POLITICAL PLATFORMS. 71 

cute the war exclusively for the maintenance of the Govern- 
ment and the preservation of the Union under the Constitu- 
tion. It has repeatedly violated that most sacred pledge 
under which was rallied that noble volunteer army which car- 
ried our flag to victory. Instead of restoring the Union it has, 
so far as it is in its power, dissolved it, and subjected ten States 
in time of peace to military despotism and negro supremacy. 
It has nullified there the right of trial by jury ; it has abolished 
the writ of habeas corpus, that most sacred writ of liberty ; it 
has overthrown the freedom of speech and of the press ; it has 
substituted arbitrary seizures and arrests, military trials, se- 
cret star chambers, and inquisitions for constitutional tribu- 
nals; it has disregarded, m time of peace, the right of the 
people to be free from search and seizure ; it has entered the 
post-office and telegraph office, and even the private rooms of 
individuals and seized there their private papers and letters, 
without any specification or notice of affidavit, as required by 
the organic law. It has converted the American Capitol into 
a bastile; it has established a system of spies and official espion- 
age to which the constitutional monarchies of Europe 
never dare to resort. It has abolished the right of appeal on 
important constitutional questions to the supreme judicial 
tribunals, and threatens to curtail or destroy its original juris- 
diction, which is irrevocably vested by the Constitution ; while 
the learned Chief Justice has been subjected to the most atro- 
cious calumnies merely because he would not prostitute his 
high office to the support of the false and partisan charges 
against the President. Its corruption and extravagance have 
exceeded anything known in history, and by its frauds and 
monopolies it has nearly doubled the burden of the debt cre- 
ated during the war. It has stripped the President of his 
Constitutional power of appointment even of his own Cabinet. 
Under its repeated assaults the pillars of the Government are 
rocking to their base ; and should it succeed in November 
next, and inaugurate its President, we will meet as a subjected 
and conquered people amid the ruins of liberly and the scat- 
tered fragments of the Constitution; and we do declare and 
resolve that ever since the people of the United States threw 
off all subjection to the British crown, the privilege and trust 
of sufTrage have belonged to the several States, and have been 
granted, regulated, and controlled exclusively by the political 



73 POLITICAL PLATFORMS. 

power of each State respectively, and any attempt by Con- 
gress, on any pretext whatever, to deprive any State of this 
right, or interfere with this exercise, is a flagrant usurpation 
of power which can find no warrant in the Constitution, and 
if sanctioned by the people will subvert our form of Govern- 
ment, and can only e-nd in a single, centralized and consolidated 
Government, in which the separate existence of the States will 
be entirely absorbed, and an unqualified despotism then be 
established in place of a Federal Union of coequal States, and 
that we regard the reconstruction acts so called of Congress 
such usurpations and unconstitutional, revolutionary and void ; 
that our soldiers and sailors who carried the flag of our country 
to victory against a most gallant and determined foe must ever 
be gratefully remembered, and all the guarantees given in 
their favor must be faithfully carried into execution; that the 
public lands should be distributed widely among the people 
and should be disposed of either under the i)re-emption of the 
homestead lands and sold in reasonable quantities, and to none 
but actual occupants, at the price established by the Govern- 
ment. When the grants of the public lands may be allowed 
necessary for the encouragement of important public improve- 
ments, the proceeds of the sale of such lands, and not the 
lands themselves, should be so applied ; that the President of 
the United States, Andrew Johnson, exercising the power of 
his high office in resisting the aggressions of Congress on the 
constitutional rights of the States and the i)eople, is entitled 
to the gratitude of the whole American people, and on behalf 
of the Democratic party, we tender him our thanks for his 
patriotic efiorts in that regard. 

Upon this platform the Democratic party appeal to every 
patriot, includiug all the conservative element, and all who 
desire to support the Constitution and restore the Union, for- 
getting all past differences of opinion, to unite with us in the 
present great struggle for the liberties of the people ; and that 
to all such, to whatever party they may have heretofore be- 
longed, we extend the right hand of fellowship, and hail all 
such co-operating with us as friends and brothers. 



POLITICAL PLii^TFORMS. 7$ 



EEPUBLICAN PLATFORM, 1872. 

The Kepublican party of the United States, assembled m 
national convention in the city of Philadelphia on the 5th and 
6th days of June, J 872, again declares its faith, appeals to its 
history, and announces its position upon the questions before 
the country: 

1. During eleven years of supremacy it has accepted with 
grand courage the solemn duties of the time. It suppressed 
a gigantic rebellion, emancipated four millions of slares, de- 
creed the equal citizenship of all, and established universal 
suffrage. Exhibiting unparalelled magnanimity, it criminally 
punished no man for political offenses, and warmly welcomed 
all who proved loyalty by obeying the laws and dealing justly 
with their neighbors. It has steadily decreased with firm 
hand the resultant disorders of a great war, and initiated a 
wise and humane policy toward the Indians. Tlie Pacific rail- 
road and similar vast enterprises have been generously aided 
and successfully conducted, the public lands freely given to 
actual settlers, immigration protected and encouraged, and a 
full acknowledgement of the naturalized citizen's rights se- 
cured from European Powers. A uniform national currency 
has been provided, repudiation frowned down, the national 
credit sustained under the most extraordinary burdens, and new 
bonds negotiated at lower rates. The revenues have been care- 
fully collected and honestly applied. Despite annual large 
reductions of the rates of taxation, the public debt has been re- 
duced during General Grant's Pi-esidency at the rate of a hun- 
dred millions a year, great financial crises have been avoided, 
and peace and plenty prevail throughout the land. Menacmg 
foreign difficulties have been peaceful l}-" and honorably com- 
posed, and the honor and power of the nation kept in high 
respect throughout the world. This glorious record of the 
past is the party's best pledge for the future. We believe 
the people will not intrust the Government to any party or 
combmation of men composed chiefly of Uwse who have re- 
sisted every step of this benilicent progress. 

2. The recent amendments to the national Constitution 
should be cordially sustained because they are right, not 



74 POLITICAl. PLATFORMS. 

merely tolerated because they are law, and should be carried 
out according to their spirit by appropriate legislation, the 
enforcement of which can safely be intrusted only to the 
party that secured those amendments. 

3. Complete liberty and exact equality in the enjoyment 
of all civil, political and public rights should be established 
and effectually maintained throughout the Union by efficient 
and appropriate State and Federal legislation. Neither the 
law nor its administration should admit any discrimination in 
respect of citizens by reason of race, cr^ed, color, or previous 
condition of servitude. 

4. The national Government should seek to maintain hon- 
orable peace with all nation , protecting its citizens every- 
where and sympathizing with all peoples who strive for greater 
liberty. 

5. Any system of the civil service under which the subor- 
dinate positions of the government are considered rewards for 
mere party zeal is fatally demoralizing, and we therefore favor 
a reform of the system by laws which shall abolish the evils 
of patronage and make honesty, efficiency, and fidelity the 
essential qualifications for public positions, without creating a 
life tenure of office. 

6. We are opposed to further grants of the public lands to 
corporations and monopolies, and demand that the national 
domain be set apart for free homes for the people. 

7. The annual revenue, after paying current expenditures, 
pensions, and the interest on the public debt, should furnish 
a moderate balance for the reduction of the principal, and 
that revenue, except so much as may be derived from a tax 
upon tobacco and liquors, should be raised by duties upon im- 
portations, the details of which should be so adjusted as to 
aid in securing remunerative wages to labor, and promote the 
industries, prosperity, and growth of the whole country. 

8. We hold in undying honor the soldiers and sailors whose 
valor saved the Union. Their pensions are a sacred debt of 
the nation, and the widows and orphans of those who died for 
their country are entitled to the care of a generous and grate- 
ful people. We favor such additional legislation as will ex- 
tend the bounty of the Government to all our soldiers and 



POLITICAL PLATFORMS. 75 



sailors who were honorably discharged, and who in the line 
of duty became disabled, wi^thout regard to the length of ser- 
vice or the cause of such discharge. 

9. The doctrine of Great Britain and other European Pow- 
ers concerning allegiance — "once a subject always asubject" 
— having at last through the efforts of the Republican party 
been abandoned, and the American idea of the individual's 
right to transfer allegiance having been accepted by Euro- 
pean nations, it is the duty of our Government to guard with 
jealous care the rights of adopted citizens against the assump- 
tion of unauthorized claims by their former Governments, 
and we urge continued careful encouragement and protec- 
tion of voluntary immigration. 

10. The franking privilege ought to be abolished, and the 
way prepared for a speedy reduction in the rates of postage. 

11 Among the questions which press for attention is that 
which concerns the relations of capital and labor, and the 
Republican party recognizes the duty of so shaping legis- 
lation as to secure full protection and the amplest field for 
capital, and for labor, the creator of capital, the largest oppor- 
tunities and a just share of the mutual profits of the^e two 
great servants of civilization. 

12. We hold that Congress and the President have only 
fulfilled an imperative duty in their measures for the sup- 
pression of violent and treasonable organizations in certain 
lately rebellious regions, and for the protection of the ballot- 
box; and therefore they are entitled to the thanks of the 
nation. 

i3. We denounce repudiation of the public debt, in any 
form or disguise as a national crime. We witness with pride 
the reduction of the principal of the debt, and the rates of in- 
terest upon the balance, and confidently expect that our ex- 
cellent national currency will be perfected by a speedy re- 
sumption of specie payment. 

14. The Republican party is mindful of its obligations to 
the loyal women of America for their noble devotion to the 
cause of freedom. Their admission to wider fields of useful- 
ness is viewed with satisfaction ; and the honest demand of 



76 POLITICAL PLATFOKMS. 



any class of citizens for additional rights should be treated 
with respectful consideration. 

15. We heartily approve the action of Congress in extend- 
ing amnesty to those lately in rebellion, and rejoice in the 
growth of peace and fraternal feeling throughout the land. 

16. The Republican party proposes to respect the rights 
reserved by the people to themselves as carefully as the 
powers delegated by them to the State and to the Federal 
Government. It disapproves of the resort to unconstitutional 
laws for the purpose of removing evils, by interference with 
rights not surrendered by the people to either the State or na- 
tional Government. 

17. It is the duty of the General Government to adopt such 
measures as may tend to encourage and restore American 
commerce and ship-building. 

18. We believe that the modest patriotism, the earnest pur- 
pose, the sound judgment, the practical wisdom, the incor- 
ruptible integrity, and the illustrious services of Ulysses S. 
Grant have commended him to the heart of the American 
people, and with him at our head we start to day upon a new 
march to victory. 

19. Henry Wilson, nominated for the Vice-Presidency 
known to the whole land from the early days of the great 
struggle for liberty as an indefatigable laborer in all cam- 
paigns, an incorruptible legislator and representative man of 
American institutions, is worthy to associate with our great 
leader and share the honors which we pledge our best eiForts 
to bestow upon them. 



NATIONAL LIBERAL REPUBLICAN CONVENTION, 1872. 
ADDRESS TO THE PEOPLE OP THE UNITED STATES. 

The Administration row in power has rendered itself guilty 
of wanton disregard of the laws of the land, and of usurping 
powers not granted by the Constitution; it has acted as if the 
laws had binding force only for those who are governed, and 
not for those who govern. It has thus struck a blow at the 
fundamental principles of constitutional government and the 
liberties of the citizen. 



POLITICAL PLATFORMS. 77 



The President of the United States has openly used the 
powers and opportunities of his high office for the promotion 
of personal ends. 

He has kept notoriously corrupt and unworthy men in 
places of power and responsibility, to the detriment of the 
public interest. 

He has used the public service of the Government as a 
machinery of corruption and personal influence, and has inter- 
fered with tyrannical arrogance in the political affairs of 
States and municipalities. 

He has rewarded with influential and lucrative offices men 
who had acquired his favor by valuable presents, thus stimu 
lating the demoralization of our political life by his conspicu- 
ous example. 

He has shown himself deplorably unequal to the task im- 
posed upon him by the necessities of the country, and culpa- 
bly careless of the responsibilities of his high office. 

The partizans of the Administration, assuming to be the 
Republican party and controlling its organization, have at- 
tempted to justify such wrongs and palliate such abuses to 
the end of maintaining partisan ascendency. 

They have stood in the way of necessary investigations and 
indispensable reforms, pretending that no serious fault could 
be found with the present administration of public afiairs, 
thus seeking to blind the eyes of the people. 

They have kept alive the passions and resentment of the 
late civil war, to use them for their own advantage , they 
have resorted to arbitrary measures in direct conflict with the 
organic law, instead of appealing to the better instincts and 
latent patriotism of the Southern people by restoring to them 
these rights, the enjoyment of which is indispensable to a 
suc'?essful administration of their local afi"airs, and would tend 
to revive a patriotic and hopeful national feeling. 

They have degraded themselves and the name of their partj^ 
once justly entitled to the confidence of the nation, by a base 
sycophancy to the dispenser of executive power and patron- 
age, unworthy of republican freemen ; they have sought to 
silence the voice of just criticism, and stifle the moral sense 
of the people, and to subjugate public opinion by tyrannical 
party discipline. 
They are striving to maintain themselves in authority for 



78 POLITICAL PLATFORMS. 

selfish ends by an unscrupulous use of the power which right- 
fully belongs to the people, and should be employed only in 
the service of the country. 

Believing that an organization thus led and controlled can 
no longer be of service to the best interests of the Republic, 
we have resolved to make an independent appeal to the sober 
judgment, conscience, and patriotism of the American people. 

KESOLUTIONS. 

We, the Liberal Republicans of the United States, in 
National Convention assembled at Cincinnati, proclaim the 
following principles as essential to just government: 

1. We recognize the equality of all men before the law, 
and hold that it is the dut> of government, in its dealings 
with the people, to mele out equal and exact justice to all, of 
whatever nativity, race, color, or persuasion, religious or 
political. 

2. We pledge ourselves to maintain the Union of these 
States, emancipation and enfranchisement, and to oppose any 
re-opening of the questions settled by the thirteenth, four- 
teenth, and fifteenth amendments of the Constitution. 

3. We demand the immediate and absolute removal of all 
disabilities imposed on account of the rebellion, which was 
finally subdued seven years ago, believing that universal am- 
nesty will result in complete pacification in all sections of 
the country. 

4. Local self-government, with impartial sufi'rage, will guard 
the rights of all citizens more securely than any centralized 
power. The public welfare requires the supremacy of the civil 
over the military authority, and the freedom of person under 
the protection of the haheas corpus. We demand for the indi- 
vidual the largest liberty consistent with public order, for the 
State self-government, and for the nation a return to the 
mefuods of peace and the constitutional limitations of power. 

h. The civil service of the Government has become a mere 
instrument of partisan tyranny and personal ambition, and an 
object of selfish greed. It is a scandal and reproach upon free 
institutions, and breeds a demoralization dangerous to the 
perpetuity of republican government. We therefore regard 
a thorough reform of the civil service as one of the most press- 
ing necessities of the hour ; that honesty, capacity, and fidelity 



POLITICAL PLATFORMS. 79 



constitute the only valid claims to public employment; that 
the offices of the Government cease to be a matter of arbitrary 
favoritism and patronage, and that public station siiall become 
again a post of honor. To this end it is imperatively required 
that no President shall be a candidate for re election. 

6. We demand a system of Federal taxation which shall 
not unnecessarily interfere with the industry of the people, 
and which shall provide the means necessary to pay the ex- 
penses of the Government, economically administered, the 
pensions, the interest on the public debt, and a moderate 
reduction annually of the principal thereof; and recognizing 
that there are in our midst honest but irreconcilable differ- 
ences of opinion with regard to the respective systems of 
protection and free trade, we remit the discussion of the sub- 
ject to the people in their congressional districts and the 
decision of Congress thereon, wholly free from executive inter- 
ference or dictation. 

7. The public credit must be sacredly maintained, and we 
denounce repudiation in every form and guise. 

8. A speedy return to specie payments is demanded alike 
by the highest considerations of commercial morality and 
honest government. 

9. We remember .with gratitude the heroism and sacrifices 
of the soldiers and sailors of the Republic, and no act of ours 
shall ever detract from their justly earned fame or the full 
rewards of their patriotism. 

10. We are opposed to all further grants of lands to rail- 
roads or other corporations. The public domain should be 
held sacred to actual settlers. 

11. We hold that is the duty of the Government in its inter- 
course with foreign nations to cultivate the Iriendships of 
peace by treating with all on fair and equal terms, regarding 
it alike dishonorable either to demand what is not right or 
submit to what is wrong. 

12. For the promotion and success of these vital principles 
and the support of the candidates nominated by this conven- 
tion we Invite and cordially welcome the co-operation of all 
patriotic citizens, without regard to previous political affili- 
ations.

NATIONAL I>EMOCRATIC CONVENTION, 1872. 

We, the Democratic electors of the United States in Con- 
vention assembled, do present the following principles, 
already adopted at Cincinnati, as essential to just government. 

1. We recognize the equality of all men before the law, 
and hold that it is the duty of Government in its dealings 
with the people to mete out equal and exact justice to all, of 
whatever nativity, race, color, or persuasion, religious or 
political. 

2. We pledge ourselves to maintain the union of these 
States, emancipation, and enfranchisement, and to oppose any 
re-opening of the questions settled by the thirteenth, four- 
teenth and fifteenth amendments to the Constitution. 

3. We demand the immediate and absolute removal of all 
disabilities imposed on account of the rebellion, which was 
finally subdued seven years ago, believing that universal am- 
nesty will result in complete pacification in all sections of 
the country. 

4. Local self-government, with impartial sufi'rage, will 
guard the rights of all citizens more securely than any cen- 
tralized power. The public welfare requires the supremacy of 
the civil over the military authority, and freedom of person 
under the protection of the habeas corpus. We demand for 
the individual the largest liberty consistent with public 
order ; for the State self-government, and for the nation a re- 
turn to the methods of peace and the constitutional limita- 
tions of power. 

5. The civil service of the Government has become a mere 
instrument of partisan tyranny and personal ambition, and 
an object of selfish greed. It is a scandal and reproach upon 
free institutions and breeds a demoralization dangerous to 
the perpetuity of republican government. We therefore re- 
gard a thorough reform of the civil service as one of the most 
pressing necessities of the hour ; that honesty, capacity, and 
fidelity constitute the only valid claim to public employ- 
ment; that the offices of the government cease to be a mat- 
ter of arbitrary favoritism and patronage, and that public 
station become again a post of honor. To this end it is im- 
peratively required that no President shall be a candidate for 
re-election.

6. We demand a system of Federal taxation which shall 
not unnecessarily interfere with the industry of the people, 
and which shall provide the means necessary to pay the ex- 
penses of the Government, economically administered, the 
pensions, the interest on the public debt, and a moderate re-

that there are in our midst honest but irreconcilable diifer-

of the soldiers and sailors of the Republic, and no act of ours 
shall ever detract from their justly earned fame for the full 
reward of their patriotism. 

10. We are opposed to all further grants of lands to rail- 
roads or other corporations. The public domain should be 
held sacred to actual settlers. 

11. We hold that it is the duty of the Government in its 
intercourse with foreign nations to cultivate the friendships 
of peace, by treating with all on fair and equal terms, regard- 
ing it alike dishonorable either to demand what is not right 
or to submit to what is wrong. 

12. For the loromotion and success of these vital princi- 
ples, and the support of the candidates nominated by this 
convention, we invite and cordially welcome the co-operation 
of all patriotic citizens, without regard to previous political 
affiliations. 



NATIONAL LABOR REFORM CONVENTION, 1872. 

We hold that all political power is inherent in tlie people, 
and free government founded on their authority and estab- 
lished for iheir benefit; that all citizens are equal in political 

6 



82 POLITICAL PLATFORMS. 



rights, entitled to the largest religious and political liberty 
compatible with the good order of society, as also the use and 
enjoyment of the fruits of their labor and talents ; and no man 
or set of men is entitled to exclusive separable endowments 
and privileges, or immunities from the Government, but in 
consideration of public services; and any laws destructive of 
these fundamental principles are without moral binding force, 
and should be repealed. And believing that all the evils re- 
sulting from unjust legislation now affecting the industrial 
classes can be removed by the adoption of the principle con- 
tained in the following declaration : Therefore, 

Resolved^ That it is the duty of the Government to estab- 
lish a just standard of distribution of capital and labor by 
providing a purely national circulating medium, based on the 
faith and resources of the nation, issued directly to the people 
without the intervention of any system of banking corpora- 
tions, which money shall be legal tender in the payment of all 
debts, public and private, and interchangeable at the oj^tion 
of the holder for Government bonds bearing a rate of interest 
not to exceed 3-65 per cent., subject to future legislation by 
Congress. 

2. That the national debt should be paid in good faith, ac- 
cording to the original contract, at the earliest option of the 
Government, without mortgaging the property of the people 
or the future exigencies of labor to enrich a few capitalists at 
home and abroad. 

3. That justice demands that the burden of Government 
should be so adjusted as to bear equally on all classes, and 
that the exemption from taxation of Government bonds bear- 
ing extravagant rates of interest is a violation of all just prin- 
ciples of revenue laws. 

4. That the public lands of the United States belong to the 
people and should not be sold to individuals nor granted to 
corporations, but should be held as a sacred trust for the ben- 
efit of tlie people, and should be granted to landless settlers 
only, in amounts not exceeding one hundred and sixty acres 
of land. 

5. That Congress should modify the tariff so as to admit 
free such articles of common use as we can neither produce 
nor grow, and lay duties for revenue mainly upon articles of 
luxury and upon such articles of manufacture as will, we bav- 



POLITICAL PLATFORMS. 83 

ing the raw materials, assist in further developing the re- 
sources of the country. 

G. That the presence in our country of Chinese laborers, 
imported by capitalists in Ir.rge numbers for servile uso>, is an 
evil, entailing want and its attendant train of misery and crime 
on all classes of the American people, and should be prohib- 
ited by legislation. 

T. That we ask for the enactment of a law by which all 
mechanics and day-laborers employed by or on behalf of the 
Government, whether directly or indirectly, through persons, 
firms, or corporations, contracting with the State, shall conform 
to the reduced standard of eight hours a day, recently adopted 
by Congress for national employes, and also for an amendment 
to the acts of incorporation for cities and towns by which all 
laborers and mechanics employed at their expense shall con- 
form to the same number of hours. 

8. That the enlightened spirit of the age demands the abo- 
lition of the system of contract labor in our prisons and other 
reformatory institutions. 

9. That the protection of life, liberty, and property are the 
three cardinal principles of Government, and the first two are 
more sacred than the latter ; therefore money needed for 
prosecuting wars should, as it is required, be assessed and col- 
lected from the wealthy of the country, and not entailed as a 
burden on posterity. 

10. That it is the duty of the Government to exercise its 
power over railroads and telegraph corporations, that they 
shall not in any case be privileged to exact such rates of 
freight, transportation, or charges, by whatever name, as may 
bear unduly or unequally upon the producer or consumer. 

11. That there should be such a reform in the civil service 
of the national Government as will remove it beyond all part- 
isan influence, and place it in the charge and under the direc- 
tion of intelligent and competent business men. 

12. That as both history and experience teaches us that 
power ever seeks to perpetuate itself by every and all means, 
and that its prolonged possession in the hands of one person 
is always dangerous to the interests of a free people, and 
believing that the spirit of our organic laws and the stability 
and safely of our free institutions are best obeyed on the one 



84 POLITICAL PLATFORMS. 



hand, and secured on the other, by a regular constitutional 
change in the chief of the country at each election : therefore, 
we are in favor of limiting the occupancy of the presidential 
chair to one term, 

13. That we are in favor of granting general amnesty and 
restoring the Union at once on the basis of equality of rights 
and privileges to all, the impartial administration of justice 
being the only true bond of union to bind the States together 
and restore the Government of the people. 

li. That we demand the subjection of the military to the 
civil authorities, and the confinement of its operations to 
national puri)oses alone. 

15. That we deem it expedient for Congress to supervise 
the patent laws, so as to give labor more fnlly the benefit of 
its own ideas and inventions. 

16. That fitness, and not political or personal considera- 
tions, should be the only recommendation to public cffice, 
either appointive or elective, and any and all laws looking to 
the establishment of this principle are heartily approved.

" It is not easy to give an accurate and comprehensive defi- 
nition of the science of geology. It is, indeed, not so much 
one science, as the application of all the physical sciences to 
the examination of the structure of the earth, the investiga- 
tion of the processes concerned in the production of that 
structure, and the history of their action. That this large 
view of geology is not only a true but a necessary one, is 
shown by the fact, that it was not until considerable advances 
had been made in all the physical sciences which relate di- 
rectly to the earth, that geology could begin to exist in any 
worthy form. It was not until the chemist was able to explain 
the nature of the mineral substances of which rocks are com- 
posed ; not till the geographer and meteorologist had explored 
the surface of the earth, and taught us the extent of land and 
water, and the powers of winds, currents, rains, glaciers, earth- 
quakes and volcanoes ; not until the naturalist had classified, 
named, and described the greater part of existing animals and 
plants, and explained their anatomical structure, and the laws 
of their distribution in space;— that the geologist could, with 
any chance of arriving at sure and definite results, commence 
his researches into the structure and composition of rocks and 
the causes which produced them, or utilize his discoveries of 
the remains of animals and plants that are inclosed in them. 
He could not until then discriminate with certainty batween 
igneous and aqueous rocks, between living and extinct ani- 
mals, and was, therefore, unable to lay down any one of the foun- 
dations on which his own science was to rest." — Encyclopedia 
Britannica^ Sih edition^ vol. xv. 

If there is any one fact which the study of geology teaches 
more unmistakably than another, it is, that the matter com- 
posing the crust of the earth, from the time when it was first 
called into existence by the ^at of the Creator to the present, 
has been subjected to an endless cycle of mutations. There

may have been periods of comparative rest and quiescen e. 
but none of perfect stagnation and stability; so that the pres- 
ent condition and configuration of the earth's surface may be 
considered as the last result of a series of cosmical changes^ 
whicii commenced with the dawn of creation, and are con- 
tinuing on into the future. 

"Had the exterior crust of the earth been subjected to no 
modil'ying causes, the world would have presented the same 
appearance now as at the time of its creation. The distribu- 
tion of land and sea would have remained the same; there 
would have been the same surface arrangement of hill, valley 
and plain, and the same unvarying aspects of animal and veg- 
etable existence. Under such circumstances, geology, instead 
of striving to present a consecutive history of change and 
progress, would have been limited to a mere description of 
permanently enduring appearances. The case, however, is 
widely different." There is no part of the present land-surface 
of the globe which has not at some time been covered by the 
ocean, while much of the present sea bottom has been in turn 
dry land. Many of the loftiest and most extensive ranges of 
mountains upon the globe — the Alps, the Andes, and the 
Himalayas — are of comparatively recent elevation (recent as 
compared with the White Mountains of New England, or the 
Appallaehian chain of the Atlantic States); while the com- 
mencement of the existence of every animal and vegetable 
species at present found upon the earth was long subsequent 
to the existence of the myriad organisms, whose remains are 
now found fossil beneath its surface. 

The agencies which have produced, and are still tending to 
produce, changes in the constitution and structure of our 
planet, may be classified as follows : 1. Igneous agencies, or 
such as manifest themselves in connection with some deep- 
seated source of heat in the interior of the globe. 2. Aque- 
ous, or thoBe arising from the action of the water. 3. Atmos- 
pheric, or those operating through the medium of the atmos- 
phere. 4. Organic, or those depending on animal and 
vegetable growth. 5. Chemical, or those resulting from the 
chemical action of substances on each other. — Wells^ Jllus- 
trated Geology.

THE TEMPERATURE OF THE EARTH. 

The following are some of the observations made most re- 
cently on this subject: In England, observations have been 
made in the vertical shafts of two very deep coal mines, viz., 
at Monkwearmouth, which is ISOO feet deep, and Dunkinfield 
which is upwards of 2000 feet deep, and in both cases the ob- 
servations were made while the workmen were sinking the 
shafts, and with every precaution against the influence of any 
extraneous causes. The former gave an increase of 1 deg. of 
Fahrenheit for every sixty feet of depth, and the latter 1 deg. 
for about every seventy feet. The artesian well of Grenelle 
(Paris), is 1800 feet deep ; observations made by Arago, during 
the boring, showed that the average increase of temperature 
in this was 1 deg. for sixty feet. At Mordorif. Luxemburg, the 
depth of the artesian well is 2400 feet, and the increase in 
temperature 1 deg. for every fifty-seven feet. At the .-irtesian 
well of New Seltzwork, in Westphalia, the depth is 2j00 feet^ 
and the increase 1 deg. for every tilly-five feet. At Louisville, 
Ky.,the depth of an artesian well, finished in 1859, is 2086 feet 
deep, and the average increase is 1 deg. for ever^^ sixty-seven 
feet below the first ninety feet from the surface. In the silver 
mine of Guanaxato, Mexico, 1713 feet deep, the increase is 1 
deg. for every forty-five feet. In the coal mines of Eastern 
Virginia, the increase is about 1 deg. for every sixty feet. 

VOLCANIC ERUPTIONS. 

One or two remarkable instances of volcanic eruptions may 
be briefly noticed. First, for duration and force we may refer 
to that which took place in the island of Sumbawa (one of the 
Sunda Islands lying east of Java), in the year 1S15. It com- 
menced on the 5th of April, and did not entirely cease until 
July. Its influence (i. e. shocks, and the noise of the explo- 
sions) was perceptible over an area 1,800 miles in diameter, 
while within the range of its more immediate vicinity, embrac- 
ing a space of 400 miles, its effects were most terrific. In Java, 
300 miles distant, it seemed to be awfully present. The sky 
was overcast at noon day with clouds of ashes, which the light 
of the sun was unable to penetrate, and fields, streets, and 
houses were covered with ashes to the depth of several inches. 
At Sumbawa itself, immense columns of flame appeared to 
burst forth from the top of the volcano, Tombora, and in a 



96 GEOLOGICAL ITEMS. 



short time the whole mountain appeared like a mass of liquid 
fire, which gradually extended in every direction. As the 
eruption continued, a darkness supervened, so profound as to 
obscure even the light of the flames ; showers of stones and 
ashes fell continuously over the whole island ; the sea rose 
twelve feet higher than it had ever been known to do before; 
and finally a whirlwind ensued, which tore up the largest trees, 
and carried them into the air, together with men, horses, cat- 
tle, and whatever else came within its influence. Of 12,000 
inhabitants in the vicinity only six are believed to have es- 
caped, and of some entire villages not even a vestige remained. 
In 1772, the Papandayang, one of the loftiest volcanic moun- 
tains in J.iva, after a short but severe eruption, suddenly fell 
in and disappeared in the earth, carrying with it about ninety 
square miles of territory. Forty villages were engulfed, or 
covered with ejected matter, at the same time, and nearly 
3,000 persons perished. — Wclls^ Illustrated Geology' 

DESCRIPTIONS OF AN EAETHQUAKE. 

"A powerful eathquake," says Mr. Darwin, "at once destroys 
the oldest associations ; the world, the very emblem of all that 
is solid, has moved beneath our feet like a crust over a fluid; 
one second of time has conveyed to the mind a strange idea of 
insecurity, which hours of reflection would never have created." 

"To man," says Humbolt, "the earthquake conveys an idea 
of some universal and unlimited danger. We may flee from 
the crater of a volcano in active eruption, or from a locality 
threatened by the approach of a lava stream ; but in an earth- 
quake, direct our flight whithersoever we will, we still feel as 
though we trod upon the very focus of destruction. Every 
sound — the faintest motion in the air — arrests our attention, 
and we no longer trust the ground on which we stand. Ani- 
mals, especially dogs and swine, participate in the same anxious 
disquietude ; and even crocodiles, in the rivers of South Amer- 
ica, which at other times are dumb, have been observed to 
quit the water and run, with loud cries, into the adjacent 
forests." 

AQUEOUS AND ATMOSPHERIC AGENCIES. 

The aqueous and atmospheric agencies most prominently 
concerned in producing geological changes, are rains^ and the 



OEOLOGICAL ITEMS. 97 



gasses OAid moisture of the atrnos2)here^ winds^ ice, and snow^ 
springs, rivers, waves, tides, and OGeanio currents. 

The operation of water, acting mechanically, is, under all 
circumstances, to wear down the higher portions of the earth's 
crust, and transport the materials to lower localities — an ac- 
tion which obviously tends to reduce the whole surface to a 
sraoofh and uniform \q^q\. On the other hand, the operations 
of igneous agents — volcanoes, earthquakes, etc. — by breaking 
up and elevating the crust of the earth, tend to counteract the 
equalizing action of water and to produce that diversity of- 
surfaco which is indispensable to variety in both the vegetable 
and animal kingdoms. These two forces, therefore— the aque- 
ous and the igneous — may be considered as ani agonistic to 
each other, and to them may be ascribed the principal modiii- 
cations which have taken place, and are still taking place, in 
the crust of the globe. — ^VdVs Illustra.ted Geology 

CORAL REELnS. 

"The ocean," says Mr. Darwin, 'throwmg its breakers on 
the outer shore, appears an invincible enemy, yet we see it re- 
sisted, and even conquered, by means which at first seem weak 
and inetHcient. No periods of repose are granted, and the 
heavy swell caused by I he steady action of the trade wind 
never ceases. The breakers exceed in violence those of our 
temperate regions ; and it is impossible to behold Ihem with- 
out feeling a conviction that rocks of granite or quartz would 
ultimately be demolished by such irresistable Ibrces. Yet 
these low coral islands stand and are victorious, for here 
another power, antagonistic to the former, takes part in the 
contest. The organic forces separate the atoms of carbonate 
of lime, one by one, from the foaming breakers, and unite 
them into a symmetrical structure ; myriads of architects are 
at work day and night, month after month, and we see their 
sofc andk gelatinous bodies, through the agency of the vital 
laws, conquering the great mechanical power of the waves of 
the ocean, which neither the art of man nor !he mechanical 
works of nai ure could successfully resist." The animals wliich 
produce coral are very timple, and resemble plants both in 
their figures and colors,

THE FIEST FORMED STRATIFIED ROCKS. 

The adoption of the theor3% that our earth was once in a 
state of entire molten fluidity, involves the existence of a sub- 
sequent period, when its primeval crust hadsufliciently cooled 
down to allow of the condensation of watery vapor and of the 
existence of a sea upon its surface. Whenever this happened,, 
the eroding and destructive action of water must have imme- 
diately manifesi'ted itself, while the particles of the consolida- 
ted igneous crust, worn off by the action of waves, tides, and 
currents, and deposited as sediments, would naturally produce 
stratified formations. 

The internal heat of the earth at that period, however, must 
have continued to act with great intensity near the surface, 
and the strata first deposited, consequently, were, in all prob- 
ability, soon greatly metamorphosed, i. e.^ reraelted down to 
form igneous rocks, or converted into hard crystalline semi- 
igneous rocks, that retained, in part, their original lines of 
stratification. 

Whether any of these first formed stratified rocks are in ex- 
istence, and open to our inspection, it is impossible to aflirm. 
Some geologists incline to the opinion that they were entirely 
remelted, and are now represented by the older or funda- 
mental granites, which, in some instances, appear to have an 
obscurely stratified structure. 

Be this as it may, it is, however, a matter of fact, that the 
oldest rocks of which we have any knowledge, which exhibit 
evidence of a sedimentary origin, appear to have been formed 
under conditions analogous to those above supposed. Thus, 
they are all more or less crystalline and indurated ; their lines 
of stratification are indistinct, and often altogether oblitera- 
ted ; and I heir whole aspect is very difi'erent from what is 
usually ascribed to rocks deposited in water. — Wellii Illustra- 
ted Geology. 

FORMATION OF COAL. 

It is now universally admitted by geologists, that coal is a 
mass of compressed, altered, and mineralized vegetation, just 
as sandstone is consolidated sand, and the slate and shale con- 
solidated clay or mud. 

The evidence upon which the belief is founded may be 
briefly stated, as follows : 

Ist. The enormous profusion of fossil plants, in the form of 



GEOLOGICAL ITEMS. 99 



impressions of leaves, trunks, branches, and barks of trees, 
found in immediate connection with coal seams. 2d. Goid is 
composed of carbon, hydroi^en, and oxygen, the same ele- 
ments (though diiiering in proportion) which enter into the 
composition of planis. 3d. The substance of coal, when ex- 
amined under the microscope, affords unmistakable evidence 
of a vegetable (cellular) structure. 4th. All the stages of 
gradation between perfect wood and perfect coal may be 
traced with the greatest certainty. 

But granting the vegetable origin of coal, the question im- 
mediately suggests itself: Under what circumstances cou'd 
so great an amount of vegetable matter have ever accumu- 
lated? — the magnitude of which may be realized in a degree, 
from the asserted fact "that all the forests of (he United 
States, if gathered into one heap, would fail to furnish the ma- 
terials of a single coal seam equal to that of Pittsburg, Penn." 

Furthermore, coal is found stratified, laminated, and ex- 
tended, in horizontal beds, which often cover very large areas, 
with a nearly constant thickness — 'he great Pittsburg coal 
seam, above referred to for example, having a nearly uniform 
thickness of from eight to twelve feet, and is estimated to 
have once covered a surface of 90,000 square miles. Goal, 
moreover, is ordinarily encased between beds of shale or 
sandstone, which bear evident proof of having been slowly 
deposited in quiet waters. In some coal fields, as many us 
seventy seams of coal, varying in thickness from a few inches 
to four, six, eight, ten, twelve, and twenty feet, occur thus in- 
terstratificd with shales and sandstones ; and yet, notwith- 
standing these frequent alternations of material, the purity of 
the coal is such, that it rarely contains any considerable ad- 
mixture of mud, sand, or other foreign mineral substances. 

In explanation of these phenomena, various hypotheses 
have been suggested, but the general opinion of the best ge- 
ologists of the present day is, that the vegetable matter con- 
stituting coal, must, in the main, have grown and accumu- 
lated in immense jungles and peat mosses for many years ; 
that the laiul must have then sunk, and become the basin of a 
lake or est nary, into which rivers ca'-ried mud and sand; these^ 
covering the vegetable matter, gradually consolidated into 
shales and sandstones, while tho vegetable matter itself un- 
derwent the process of mineralization, and was converted into

coal. This being done, it is supposed that the area of deposit 
was again elevated, so as to become once more the scene of 
kixnrianf vegetation ; then again submerged, and overlaid by 
new depooilS of sandstone and shale; then once more elevated 
and covered with plants, and again submerged; and these al- 
ternations of submergence and elevationr? are prrsumed to 
have taken place as often as there are beds of coal in any par 
ticular coal field. — WelVs Illustrated Geology. 

CLIMATIC CONDITIONS OF THE CARBONIFEROUS ERA. 

There is one <'ircumstance in connection with the formation 
of coal which has given rise to a vast amount of ingenious 
speculation and liypotheses, viz: the apparent sameness of 
external conditions over such extensive areas of the earth as 
are now occupied by our known coal fields. Thus, the same 
gigantic ferns and club-mosses are found alike in the coal 
fields of America, Europe, Melville Island, Greenland, and 
Austrab":v- regions widely separated, and at once tropical, 
temperate, and frigid. To ac|ount for this luxuriance and 
homogeneity of vegetable growth various causes have been 
suggested, as the earth's central heat, a change in the earth's 
axis, a larger percentage of carbonic acid in the atmosphere, 
the planetary system moving through warmer regions of space 
and tho like ; but thus far geologists have arrived at no definite 
conclusions on the subject. 

Deposits of carbonaceous matter have occurred at almost 
every period of the earth's historv, as is evidenced by the fact 
that thin seams of coal are found in almost all the geological 
systems; but Ihe coal beds which admit of economical work- 
ing are almost exclusively confined to the carboniferous sys- 
tem. The only exceptions are a few coal fields belonging to 
the Oolih'c or Jurassic system, which, in Virginia and some 
other localities, admit of profitable mining. It seems, there- 
fore, certain, that whatever may have been the conditions 
which allov/ed of so abundant a terrestrial vegetation at this 
particular epoch of the earth's history, those conditions ceased 
about tho time when the era of the Carboniferous system ter- 
minated. A high temperature was evidently not one of these 
conditions, for there are evidences of it afterwards; and some 
authorities incline to the belief that the superabundance of 
carbonic acid gas, which is supposed to have existed during 



GEOLOGICAL ITEMS. 101 



this era, was expended before its close. " There can be no 
doubt that the infusion of a large amount of this gas into the 
atmosphere at the present day would be attended by precisely 
the same circumstances as in the time of the coal epoch. The 
higher forms of animal life would not have a place on eavih. 
Vegetation would be enormous ; and coal strata would be 
formed from the vast accumulations of woody matter, which 
would gather in every favorable locality." 

DISTRIBUTION OF COAL. 

Coal is very widely distributed over the world, although 
some countries are more highly favored than others. Avail- 
able coal fields occur in Great Britain ; in Spain, France, Bel- 
gium and Middle Europe; in India, China and Japan; in the 
islands of the Indian Archipelago; in Australia and New 
Zealand : in South America, Chili and Peru ; in Greenland, 
Melville Island and in British America. But nowhere is the 
coal formation more extensively displayed than in the United 
States, and nowhere are its beds of greater thickness, more 
convenient for working, or of more valuable quality. 

The eastern half of the continent of North America exhibits 
five great coal fields, extending from Newfoundland to Arkan- 
sas: 1. The Arst^ or most eastern, is that of the British Prov- 
inces, Newloundiand, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick. Its 
area is probably about 9,000 square miles, though only one 
tenth of this surface appears to be underlaid by productive 
coal seams. 2. The second^ or Great Appalachian coal field, 
extends from Pennsylvania and Ohio to near Tuscaloosa, in 
the interior of Alabama. It is about S75 miles long, and is es- 
timated to contain 70,000 pquare miles. 3. A thirds and 
smaller coal field, occupies the center of the State of Michi- 
gan ; it covers an area of about 15,000 square miles, but is not 
very produciive. 4. A fourtJi great coal field is situated in 
the States of K^n Micky, Indiana and Illionois. Its area is es- 
timated at 50 000 square miles. 5. The fifths and most western, 
occurs in i* vu, Missouri and Arkansas, and occupies an area 
of about 57.000 square miles. Besides these great deposits, 
coal is also found in New England, Kansas, Nebraska, and 
Texas. 

The aggregate space underlaid by the coal fields of North 
America amounts to at least 200,000 square miles, or to more

than twenty times the area which includes all the known coal 
deposits of Europe. — Wells^ Geology. 

MISCELLANEOUS. 

The number of species of animals that now inhabit the globe 
is about 250,000. The number of fossil species of animals and 
plants cannot be reliably estimated, but it is safe to say that 
the number of the different exiinct species that have been 
found in fossil state exceeds many times the number of all the 
different species now living. 

Geologists claim four distinct periods or ages of the earth's 
history. Beginning at the oldest, they are called or named, 
First, the Azoic period, or period deficient of the evidence 
of life; Second, Paleozoic, or period of ancient life ; Third, the 
Mesozoic, or period of middle life; Fourth, or last period, 
called Oainozoic. This period includes the Post Tertiary, or 
recent system of rocks or period of recent life. 

A picture of the Azoic period has thus been imagined by 
Hugh Miller. "During the early part of the Azoic period we 
may imagine," he says, " a dark atmosphere of steam and va- 
por, which, for age after age conceals the face of the sun, and 
through wlich the moon or stars never penetrates; 0(;eans of 
thermal waters, heated in a thousand centers to the boiling 
point; low, half molten islands, dim through the fog and scarce 
more fixed than v/aves themselves, that heave and tremble 
under the impulsions of the igneous agencies ; roaring geysers 
that ever and anon throw up their intermittent jets of boiling 
fluid, vapor and thick steam, from these tremulous lands; and 
in the dim outskirts of the scene, the red gleam of fire sliot 
forth fropj yawning cracks and deep chasms. Such would 
be the probable state of things among the times of the earlier 
gneiss and mica chist deposits — times buried deep in that 
chaotic night which must have continued to exist for, ma}"" 
bap, many ages after that beginning of things in which God 
created the lieavens and the earth." 

At length, however, as the earth's surface gradually cooled 
down and the enveloping waters sunk to a lower temperature, 
let us suppose during the latter times of the mica schist and 
the earlier times of the clay slate, the steam atmosphere would 
become less dense and thick, and finally the rays of the sun 
would struggle through it; at first doubtful and diffused, form-

Ing a faint twilight, but gradually strengthening, as the later 
ages of the slate formation passed away, until at the close of 
the great primary period day and night — the one still dim and 
grey, the other wrapped in the pall of darkness — would suc- 
ceed each other as now, as tho earth revolved on its axis. 

The number of active volcanoes on our globe are about 275

the interior escapes to the surface. 

The falls of Niagara are 150 feet in heigiit, and the average 
amount of water passing over each minute is estimated at

edly excavated for itself the gorge or channel — seven miles 
long, 200 feet deep, and 1,200 to 2,000 feet wide-vvhich now 
intervenes between the falls and Lake Ontario. The minimum 
time required to wear through this space has been estimated 
by Sir Charles Ly ell, at 35,000 years.— WeWs Illustrated GeoL 

STRATIFIED ROCKS. 

The stratified rocks of Great Britain have been studied more 
than any other of the earth, and as the result of these investi- 
gations it has been found that the extinct mammalia, found in 
fossiliferous rocks, is more numerous by half than all the 
species now existing; and of molluscs, the fossil species nine 
times as numerous as the living species ; the fossil fish five 
times, the reptiles ten times, and the radiate fourteen times. 

The geologist finds no trace of that golden age of the world 
of which the poets delighted to sing, when all creatures lived 
together in peace, and wars and bloodshed were unknown. 
Ever since animal life began on our planet, there existed, in 
all departments of being, carniverous classes, wlio could not 
live but by the death of their neighbors ; and who were armed, 
in consequence, for their destruction, like the butcher with 
his axe and knife, and the angler with his hook and spear. 

In Europe, the caverns or caves that have been discovered, 
have contained the remains or skeletons of a great many of 
the different species of animals that now inhabit the earth, 
and of others that are now extinct. For instance, the bones 
and skeletons of the mammoth are found in great numbers; 
also of the raast.idon, the epoch of tho mastadon, in a geolog- 
ical sense, is very recent. Some think that th.e mammoths 
and mastadons did not become entirely extinct in this country 
until after the advent of man. Sir Charles Lyell is of the 
opinion that the period of the extinction of the mastadon, 
although recent, must have been many thousand year-s ago. 



PHILOSOPHY. 



No two particles of matter can occupy the same space at the 
same time. 

All bodies weigh heaviest at the earth's surface. A body 
that weighs 10 pounds at the earth's surface will weigh but 
2^ pounds 4,000 miles high. 

Take two cog-wheels of the same size; let one stand still 
put the cogs together and put the other in motion, and when 
it has made one-half revolution around the standing wheel it 
will have made a full revolution on its own center, notwith- 
standiDg onlj'^ one-half of the cogs of its own surface has 
touched the standing wheel. 

The atmosphere is the lightest in wet, rainy weather ; yet 
we find people very often who think different. The medium 
pressure of the atmosphere is about fifteen pounds to the 
square inch, but this is not always the case. The pressure 
will vary in the same locality, and sometimes be greater or 
less. The medium hight that atmospheric pressure will raise 
water is about 33 feet ; but this calculation only holds good at 
the level of the sea, because as we ascend from the sea level 
the pressure becomes less; hence, our calculations for raising 
water by atmospheric pressure must be governed by the pres- 
sure that atmosphere has at the hight of the position above 
the sea level. Illustration : At sea level atmospheric pressure 
fifteen pounds to the square inch ; one mile above sea level, 
about 12-4- pounds; two miles above, 10 pounds ; three miles^ 
7|- pounds ; consequently, on an elevation three miles high, 
water cannot be raised but about IG^ feet by the weight of 
the air. 

The top or upper part of a wagon wheel passes through a 
greater amount of space in a given time when running than 
the bottom ; or, in other words, runs the fastest.

PHILOSOPHY. 105 



The piston rod of a steam engine makes two complete stops at 
every revolution of the crank attached to (he end of the pitman. 

UoKSE Power. — The avera;2;o power of a horse is sufficient to 
raise a weiglit of about 23,000 pounds one lb)t per miaute, but 
when calculating the horse power of a steam engine it is csti- 
tmated at 33,000 pounds. It then follows that a ten liorse 
j)Owers team engine is, in fact, about equal to fourteen average 
horses. 

Power of Steam. — One cubic foot of water converted into 
steam will raise the enormous weight of three and a half mil- 
lion pounds one foot, or seven hundred pounds one mile high. 

All bodies or particles of matter fail to the eath by the at- 
traction of gravity, and their speed is in proportion to their 
density; but take away the resisting force of the atmosphere, 
then a cork or feather will fall as fast as a bullet. 

Resultant motion may be illustrated by holding a ball or 
weight in your hand and dropping it from the top of your head 
while running, you will find that you cannot run fast enough 
to overtake the ball before it strikes the ground. 

A ball may be shot from a cannon from the top of a tower 
on a horizontal plain, and another dropped from the mouth of 
the cannon at the same time, and they will both strike the 
earth at the same time, provided the surface be horizontal 
with the cannon. 

Lever power is almo3t indispensable, or in other words, 
without it we could scarcely do anything; yet to take in con- 
sideration distance and speed, there is not a particle of power 
gained by a lever. Illustration : Suppose a lever L^O feet long, 
the fulcrum 2 feet from one end of the lever, 10 pounds on the 
long end of the lever is equal to 100 pounds on the short end ; 
but to raise the JOO pounds one foot the ten pounds passes 
through 10 feet of space, consequently it travels ten times as 
fast as the 100 pounds, so all that is gained in power is lost in 
speed and distance ; because if both ends of the lever was of 
the same length while one end of the lever was passing 
through ten feet of space the other end would pass through 
the same ten feet ; and ten pounds would raise ten pounds ten 
feet high, or ten times as high as the ten pounds on the long 
end of the lever would raist^ the 100 pounds on th • short end. 



SKETCHES OF ASTRONOMY. 



ORIGIN OF THE SOLAR SYSTEM 

Many theories have been propounded at different periods 
of the history of astronomy, respectijjg the original formation 
of our Solar System, as well as all other suns and systems, 
which it has pleased the great cREAToa of all things to call 
into existence, but no one has gained so great favor or excited 
so violent opposition, as the theory first proposed by Sir Wil- 
liam Herschel, and afterwards more especially applied by the 
•celebrated La Place to the formation of the solar system. 

This theory may bo thus stated :•— In the beginning all the 
matter composing the sun, jjlanets, and satellites was diffused 
through space, in a state of exceedingly minute division, the 
ultimate particles being held asunder by the repulsion of 
heat. In process of time, under the action of gravitation, th^ 
mass assumed a round or globular shape, and the particles 
tending to the centre of gravity, a motion of rotation on an 
axis would commence. The great mass, now gradually cool 
ing and condensing, must increase its rotary motion, thereby 
increasing the centrifugal force at the equator of the revolv- 
ing mass, until, finally, a ring of matter is actually detached 
from the equator, and is left revolving in space by the shrink- 
ing away from it, of the interior mass. If now we follow this 
isolated ring of matter, we find every reason to believe that 
its particles will gradually coalesce into a globular form, and 
in turn form satellites, as it was it&elf ibrmed. It is unneces- 
sary to pursue the reasoning further, for the same laws which 
produce one planet Irom the equator of the central revolving 
mass, may produce many — until finally, the process is ended 
by a partial solidification of the central mass, so great, that 
gravity aided by the attraction of cohesion, is more ihan suf- 
ficient to resist the action of tho centrifugal force, juid no fur- 
ther change occurs.

SKETCHES OF ASTRONOMY. 107 



It has been urged in lavor of this theory, that it accounts 
for the striking peculiarities wliich are found in the organiza- 
tion of the solar system. That the rings of Saturn are positive 
proofs of the truth of the theory, they having cooled and con- 
densed without breaking. That the individuals constituting 
a system thus produced, must revolve and rotate as do the 
planets and satellites, and in orbits of the precise figure and 
position, as those occupied by the planets. It accounts for 
the rotation of the sun on its axis, and presents a solution of 
the strange appearance connected with the sun called the 
Zodiacal Light. It goes further and accounts for the forma- 
tion of single, double, and multiple suns and stars — and by the 
remains of chaotic matter in the interstics between the stars, 
and which are finally drawn to some particular sun, whose in- 
fluence in the end preponderates, accounts for the comets 
which enter our system Irom every region in space. 

In support of this theory it has been urged that the comets, 
in their organization, presents us with specimens of this finely 
divided nebulous or chaotic matter — and that the telescope 
reveals cloudy patches of light of indefinite extent, scattered 
throughout space, which give evidence of being yet unformed 
and chaotic. That many stars are found in which the bright 
nucleus or centre is surrounded by a halo or haze of nebulous 
light, and that round nebulous bodies are seen with the teles- 
cope, of an extent vastly greater than would fill the entire 
space encircled by the enormous orbit of the planet La 
Verrier, or having a diameter greater than 7,000 millions of 
miles. 

Such are a few of the arguments in support of this most ex- 
traordinary theory. We now present the objections which 
have been most strongly insisted on. The retrogade motions 
of the satellites of Herschcl, and their great inclination to 
the plane of the ecliptic can not be accounted for by this 
theory. That computation shows that no atmosphere of con- 
densed nebulous matter can extend to so great a distance Ironi 
the sun, as does the matter composing the Zodiacal Light, and, 
finally, that the nel)ulous matter in the heavens will ulfi- 
mately he resolved into immense congeries and clusters of 
stars, whose great distance has hitherto defied the power of 
the best instruments. 

In reply to the first objection, the friends of the theory doubt 



108 SKETCHES OP ASTRONOMY. 

the facts with reference to the satellites of Herschel. They 
reply that the matter composing the Zodiac^d Light being in 
the nature of cometary matter, is thrown to a greater distance 
from the sun than gravity would warrant, by that power resid- 
ing in the sun which is able on the approach of comets to 
project those enormous trains of light, which sometimes render 
them so wonderful. As to the last objection, it is urged that 
although many nebulas will doubtless be resolved into stars, 
by using more powerful telescopes, yet that these same teles- 
copes will reveal more new nebulae which cannot be resolved, 
than they will resolve — and as to the existence of nebulous 
matter, it is perfectly demonstrated by the physical organiza- 
tion of comets, and the existence of nebulous stars. 

Such was the state of the Astronomical argument, when 
Lord Rosse's Great Reflector was first applied to the explora- 
tion of the distant regions of space. In a religious point of 
view, this theory had excited no small amount of discussion, 
in consequence of its supposed Atheistical tendencies. The 
friends of the theory contend that it was no more Atheistical 
to admit the formation of the universe by law, than to acknowl- 
edge that it is now sustained by laws. Indeed since we must 
go to the first great cause for matter in its chaotic state, as 
well as for the laws which govern matter, that this theory gave 
to us a grander view of the omniscience and omnipotence of 
God than could be obtained from any other source. In fine, 
that it harmonized with the declaration of scripture, which 
tells us that "In the beginning God created the heavens and 
the earth, and the earth was iDith-out form and void^'' If the 
earth came into existence in its i^resent condition, then it had 
form and was nut void. Hence, this first grand declaration of 
the inspired writer must refer to the Ibrmation of the matter 
of which the heavens and earth were afterwards formed. Some 
went so far as to trace out dimly a lull account of this theory 
in the order of creation, as laid down in Gensis. 

Let us now proceed to the discoveries of Lord Ros«e, and their 
influence on this greatly disputed theory. The space penetrat- 
ing power of his six feet reflector is much greater than that 
of Sir William Herschel's great telescope, and it was anti- 
cipated that majiy nebulge which were unresolved into clusters 
of stars by Hershel, would yield under the greater power and 
light of Lord Rosse's telescope. This has proved to be the 



SKETCHES OF ASTRONOMY. 109 



fact. Very many nebulas have been removed from their old 
places, and must hereafter figure among the clusters, while we 
are informed that many yet remain, even of the old nebulas, 
which def}^ the power of the monster telescope. 

The most remarkable object which has been resolved by 
Lord Rosse, is the great nebula in Orion, one of the most 
extraordinary objects in the heavens. Its size is enormous, 
and its figure very extraordinary. In certain parts adjoining 
the nebula the heavens are jet hlach, either from contrast or by 
the vacuity of these regions. Two immense spurs of light ar.- 
seen to project from the i^rincipal mass of the nebula, and to 
exlend to a most extraordinary distance. This will be better 
understood, by remembering that at the distance at which this 
nebula is removed from us, the entire diameter of the earth's 
orbit, 190 millions of miles, is an invisable point, less than one 
second, while this nebula extends to many thousands of times 
this distance, and more probabl}^ to many millions of times. 

Several stars have been found, and are visible on the nebula, 
but have hitherto been regarded as being between the eye of 
the observer and this remote object. Sir William Ilerschel 
was unable to resolve this mysterious body, and yet the nebula 
gave indications of being of the resolvable kind by its irreg- 
ular and curdled appearance under high powers. Several 
years since Dr. J. Lamont, of Munich, after a rigid scrutiny, of 
this nebula with his great Refractor, pronounced a portion of 
it to be composed of minute stellar points^ iin(i\)ve{\\ctQ(iii^ 
final perfect resolution into stars by greater power. This pre- 
diction has been fully verified, for Lord Rosse's great Reflector 
has solved the mystery, and filled this extraordinary object 
with the "jewelry of s'ars.'' 

But the question recurs, what have the defenders of the 
nebular theory lost, or its enemies gained by this interestmg 
discovery? We are all liable to reach conclusions too hastily, 
and to join issue on false points. If the nebular theory depen- 
ded for its existance upon the irresolvability of the nebula in 
Orion, then inuoed has the theory been entirely exploded. 
But this is not tlis fact. No one has asserted that the 
great nebula in Orion was nehuloiis matter^ and if it were not, 
then none existed. Such an issue would have been a false cne, 
had it been made. 

The theory has neither lost nor gained by the discoveries

thus far made; what time may develope it is impossib'e lo 
say. In case certain data can be obtained, which appear 'o l)e 
accessible, tlieu indeed may we demonstrate its truth or lalpe 
hood, by mathematical investii^ation. Until then, the safer- 
plan is neither to adopt nor reject, but investigate until abso- 
lute triiih shall reward our long continued labor, and reveal 
the mystery of the organization cf that stupendous system, ot 
which our humble planet forms an insignificant part. — S/Uii/.^'

other planets belonging to our universe revolve. The names 
of all the primary planets that have been discovered that con- 
stitute the solar system, are the Sun, Mercury, Venus, the 
Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Herschel, Uranus, Neptune, and 
twenty-three asteroids, or small ijianetf. The approximate

COMETS. 

Very little is known of the physical nature of comets. 
They are thought by fc.ome astronomers to be about as dense 
as smoke. They are bodies that revolve around the sun in 
very elongated orbits, and some astronomers think that the 
greater number visit our system but once, and then fly off in 
nearly straight lines, and go to revolve around other suns in 
the lar-ofF distant heavens. The length of the tail of a comet,. 
as measured by astronomers, seem almost incredible.

DIl^ECTIONS FOR FINDING THE NOETII STAE, AT ANY TIME. 

Every pupil should be instructed in the manner of poin!ing 
out the North Slar at any time of tiie night. If they aio ena- 
bled to do this at any time, it will assist them in malung other 
important observations, as well as being of use on many occa- 
sions which occur in the life of every man. Many peroons 
have been lost in dipraiQ'ie or other unfrequented places, when 
if they had been able to have told the points of the compass 
they could have extricated themselves from their lost situa- 
tion. This may be done in a very easy manner. There is 
hardly a child of ten years of ago who cannot at any time of 
night point out the stars in the Great Bear which form what is 
called the Great Dipj^er. Now if an imaginary line be drawn 
through the two stars which Ibrm the front edge of the Dipper, 
from the bottom towards the top, and continued about 20 de- 
grees, it will pass very near the North Star — so near that it 
cannot be mistaken, there being no other stars of that magni- 
tude near it. It should be borne in mind that this rule holds 
good in whatever position the Dipper may be at the time. — 
SmitJi's Illustrated Astronomy. 

ECLIPSES. 

Eclipses are among the most interesting phenomena pre- 
sented to us by the heavenly bodies. In all ages, when an 
eclipse has taken place, it has excited the profound attention 
of the learned, and the fears and superstitions of the ignorant. 
The causes of eclipses before the seventeenth century were 
known only to a few, and they generally took advantage of 
this knowledge to impose upon the credulity of the ignorant 
by pretending that they were inspired by the Gods. Among 
the ancient nations, the Chaldeans were the foremost in their 
observations of the phenomena of the heavens ; perhaps this 
was owing in some measure to their occupation ; they being 
shepherds were obliged to watch their flocks by night to pro- 
tect them from the wild beasts which were at that time num- 
erous. Men under such circumstances would naturally be 
led to watch closely the movements of the heavenly bodies, 
and more especially so, for in the earlier periods of the world 
they had no correct mode of reckoning time in order to deter- 
mine the seasons or the proper seed time and harvest. 

Eclipses attracted the particular attention of the Chaldeans, 



112 SKETCHES OF ASIRONOMY. 

and by a series of observations extended through several cen- 
turies, they discovered a very important fact relating to 
eclipses, although they did not understand the cause. 

By comparing the records which had been made for a great 
length of time, they found that a certain period of time elapsed 
between eclipses of the same kind and magnitude ; that is, if 
18 years, 11 days, 7 hours and 43 minutes, were added to the 
time of the happening of any eclipse, it would show the time 
of the return of the same eclipse ; the only differences would 
be that it would not happen at the same time in the day and 
it would be a little greater or less than the previous eclipse — 
thus they were able to predict eclipses with sufficient accu- 
racy to answer their designs upon the ignorant without under- 
standing the laws by which these periodical returns were 
produced. 

To explain this briefly, it must be remembered that the 
moon's orbit makes an angle with the plane of the earth's or- 
bit of 5^ deg.; these two points where the moon's orbit cuts 
the plane of the earth's orbit, are called nodes. Now we will 
suppose that on any day at noon it is nev/ moon, and the moon 
is just 16 deg. from her descending node, the shadow of the 
moon would just touch the earth at the north pole ; in 223 lu- 
nations, or IS years, 11 days, 7 hours, 43 minutes thereafter, 
the moon would come nearly to the same position as it was at 
the beginning, consequently Ihere would be another small 
eclipse of the sun, and at the expiration af every 223 lunations 
it would return, and at each return the moon's shadow would 
pass across the earth a little more to the south until the 
eclipse had appeared about 77 times, when it would pass off 
at the south pole, occupying a period of 1,388 years : The same 
period would not commence again until the expiration of 12.- 
492 j'^ears. Each eclipse which takes place during any year, be- 
longs to a separate and similar period. Those periods of 
eclipses which come in at the moon's ascending node, first 
come on to the earth at the south pole, and at each return the 
moon's shadow passes across the earth more to the north, and 
after appearing about 77 times, they finally leave the earth at 
the north pole. — Smithh Astronomy.

IMMENSITY OF SPACE. 

Great is the immensity of space. Light travels at the rate 
of one hundred and ninety-two thousand miles per second 
and yet at this great speed it would take it over thirty million 
years to come from some of the far off nebulas to the earth. 
Some ideas of the immensity of space may be gathered by 
the calculation of the distance that light would travel in thirty 
millions of years, and then supposing that the distance ascer- 
tained by the calculation, was to the remaining distance as 
one drop of water is to the ocean. In all probability the most 
Xjowerful telescope has only brought to view a small portion 
of creation. 

The nearest fixed stars, according to the best astronomical 
calculation, 20,000,000,000,000 of miles from the earth. To 
assist the mind of the reader to get some idea of the immensity 
of this distance, I have taken the pains to make the following 
calculation: Suppose that when the Lord past sentence upon 
Cain for killing his brother, that Jie had banished him to the 
nearest fixed star, and had caused a whirlwind or some other 
power to have taken him at the rate of one thousand miles an 
hour day and night from that time till now, counting the time 
past six thousand years, at SCO days travel to the year, he 
would have traveled at the end of the six thousand years only 
one 0.80th iDart of the distance, and at the same rate of speed 
at the end of two million j-ears from this time he would not 
reach his destination, but would yet be one trillion three hun- 
dred and eighty-two billion four hundred million miles from 
his future home, or place of banishment. So you see that after 
two million and six thousand years travel at the enormous 
speed of one thousand miles an hour, leaves a distance yet 
untraveled equal to about fifty five million times the distance 
of Cook's voyage around the earth.

Or about one in every fourteen of the inhabitants of the world are 
Protestants. Of this number there is about one in every four identified 
with or members of tho different Protestant churches of the world. It 
then follows that the entire membership of all the Protestant churches 
of the world amounts to one in fifty-six of the inhabitants. 

The number of Roman Catholics (approximately correct) is as follows: 

United States 3,500,000

Pagans, or those who worshipped idols, or created things or beings^ 
they number near three-fourths of the entire inhabitants of the earth. 
They number at present about 1,000,000,000. This includes the Moham- 
medans, the Buddhists and the Mormons, or Latter Day Saints. Of this 
number there is to be found in the United States, of Mormons, 75,000. 
And strange as it may seem, we have about 60,000 Heathen idol worship-

SABBATH SCHOOLS. 



:o:- 



The first Sabbath School that we have been able to find a 
record of, was establislied in the j'ear 17G9 in the town of W\''- 
cuinbe, England, by a young Melhodist lady by the name of 
Hannah Ball. A few years after this another young lady who 
afterwards became the wife of Samuel Bradburn, suggested 
the idea of Sabbath Schools to Robert Rakes. He being a 
man of quick i^erception and great energy saw at onco the ad- 
vantages to be gained by schools of this kind. He immedi- 
ately set to work and organized a school in the city of Glou- 
cester, England, and through his labors and influence other 
cities of. that country were induced to establish Sabbath 
Schools and work for the Sunday School interest. 

The first Sabbath School established in the United States 
was organized by Bishop Asbury, in the yearl7S6, in Hanover 
County, Va., at the house of Mr. Thomas Cranshaw. The pro- 
gress of Sabbath Schools in the United States until about the 
year 1830, was rather slow, as but few of the Christian denom- 
inations up to that time had become interested in the Sunday 
School cause. But one by one, the difi'erent organizations of 
Christians have gradually adopted the institution of Sabbath 
Schools, till now, the popular method of all churches for the 
religious training of the young is the Sunday School. Now, in 
every land and nation, where Christian people reside, the 
Sabbath School cause is advancing. 

The organization of Sabbath Schools, 

Remember one and all, 
Was first established in Wycumbe, 

By Miss Hannah Ball. 

After this Miss Bradburn 

Suggested to Robert Raktes 
To organize a Sabbath School, 

And helped him set the stakes. 

a25) 



126 SABBATH SCHOOLS. 



They organized in Gloucester, 

The banner they unfurled, 
The fame and name of which has spread, 

Almost throughout the world. 

The honor due to Robert Rakes, 
Miss Bradburn and Miss Ball. 

Should not be given to Robert Rakes, 
But given to them all. 

For the institution of Sabbath Schools, 

The honor is due Miss Ball. 
To her for lighting up the lamp, 

"We give the honor all. 

Miss Bradburn she is worthy of 

Our honor, love, and praise, 
For her suggestions, and her work, 

In keeping up the blaze. 

And to Robert Rakes is due 
The honor of school extension, 

For adding fuel to the light, 
And widening its dimension.

A HISTORICAL SKETCH 



OF 



HE]^DEICKS COUNTY, 



Hendricks County is near the centre of the State of Indiana, 
and is bounded on the north by Boone county, on the east by 
Marion, on the south b}' Morgan, and on the west by Putnam 
and Montgomery. It contains about 420 square miles, or near 
one hundred and thirty-five thousand acres of land. The county 
was organized in the year 1824; it was named in honor of r)ne 
of Indiana's noble Governors, William Hendricks, the sec- 
ond Governor of the State. The surface of the county is 
generally level or slightly rolling ; there is but very little of 
the county but what can be cultivated. There is some 
broken land on the creeks or streams that run through the 
the county, but it can all, or abouc all, be made profitable for 
grazing and stock-raising. The timber of the county is of very 
fine quality and of great abundance, especially in the northern 
part of the county, where staves are shipped by the hundred 
thousand, and saw logs by the hundred. 

The county is watered by Eel River, Mill Creek, Mud Creek, 
White Lick Creek, and their tributaries. Eel River runs through 
the north-west part of the county, Mill Creek the south-west. 
Mud Creek the south, ami White Lick the east. The soil is 
generally of fine quality and well adapted to the raising of wheat, 
rye, oats, barley and Indian corn ; roots and vegetables are 
grown in abundance ; blue grass and other grasses grow spon- 
taneously, thereby making this one of the best stock-raising 
counties in the State. Almost all kinds of fruit raised in this 
climate do well here, and fruit-raisers receive profitable returns. 



132 DIRECTORY OF HENDRICKS COUNTY. 

The first settlers emigrated fi-om North Carolina to this county 
about the year i8i8, and settled on Government lands prior to 
entry. The first land entered in the county was entered in July, 
1 82 1, about three years before the organization of the county. 
The first settlements were made in the south-east part of the 
county, in what is now called Liberty and Gilford townships. 
Some of the first settlers were David Downs, Ross Nichols, 
Richard Christie, George and David Matlock, Wm. Ballard, 
Jonathan Rodgers, James Thompson, Thomas Hadley, Josiah 
Tomlinson, John Bryant, and Thomas Lockhart. 

After the organization of the county, in the year 1824, the 
three first County Commissioners, Thomas Lockhart, Gideon 
Willson and Littlebery Blackley, met in council and divided the 
county into four townships. They made arrangements for the 
sale of lots in Danville, the county seat, and ordered elections 
for a Justice of the Peace to be elected in each township, and 
appointed the necessary township officers. And right here let 
me say, that notwithstanding Thomas Lockhart was of sufficient 
age to be one of Hendricks county's first Commissioners, he is 
yet a citizen of the county, acting in the capacity as minister of 
the Gospel for the Christian Church. He has lived to see the 
county reared from poverty to wealth — from a howling wilder- 
ness, inhabited by the wild beasts of the forest, to one of the best 
improved counties in the State, populated by over twenty thous- 
and intelligent. Christian people. Long may he wave ! 

The first Clerk of the county was Levi Jessup, who did all the 
Ijusiness of the county as Clerk, Recorder and Collector, and 
was succeeded in office by Simon T. Hadley. The names of 
those who have since held the position of Clerk of the county 
are James M. Gregg, Joshua D. Parker, John Irons, Levi Ritter, 
N, T. Hadley and Lotan Jinkens. 

The first Sheriff of the county was Thos. J. Matlock ; the first 
Prosecuting Attorney, Harvey Gregg. The first marriage license 
issued in the county was issued to James Renolds and Rachel 
Demoss, who were joined in marriage on the 17th day of No- 
vember, 1824, by Samuel Jessup, Justice of the Peace. The first 
white male child born in the county was Thomas Nichols, son 
of Ross Nichols. The first Circuit Court held in the county was 



DIRECTORY OP HENDRICKS COUNTY. lo3 

held at the residence of Wm. Ballard, about one-half mile south- 
east of Bellville, on a farm now owned by John T. Hamrick. 
W. W. Wick was Circuit Judge, Nathan Hick and James Doun- 
ard were Associate Judges. The only private room that could 
be found for the grand jury at that time was a dry spot in the 
forest where they could be seated on a log. But I presume that 
nothing intruded on their privacy to startle or molest them, ex- 
cept the occasional wa-oo of the owl, the croak of the bullfrog, 
or hiss of the rattlesnake. 

The first Representative of the county was Lewis Mastin, his 
successor Col. Thomas Nichols. Col. C. C. Nave may possibly 
remember that others were elected to the office of Representative 
of the county prior to his election for the same, but can not re- 
member that the county was ever represented until he did it. 

The first school taught in the county was taught by Wesley 
McCinley, at Danville, in the year 1824. The first church organ- 
ized in the county was the regular Baptist Church, at Danville- 
The first steam sawmill in the county was built at Old Spring- 
town, in Clay township, by Mr. Cofifen. The first steam 

woolen mill in the county was built in Danville b}' Wm. C. 
Cline, who afterwards attached a gristmill, and was burnt out 
in the year 1 85 2. Said Cline thinks the first cook stove used in 
the county was bought by him in 1840. 

The first dry goods merchant in the county was James L. 
Givan, who located at Danville in a very early day, and sold 
goods for a long period in Danville. Mr. Givan is still living, 
but is not now a resident of the county. 

We will now go back to the first settling of the county, and 
see how rapid she h-^s advanced in population, wealth and im- 
provements. About the year 18 18 the first white man settled on 
her soil, and felled the first timber to build the first log cabin on 
her territory. In 1824 the territory of the county had in- 
creased in population to a sufficient number to become necessa- 
ry for an organization of the county, with a population of about 
1,000. For the next six years emigration kept rapidl)- flowing 
in from the States of North Carolina, Kentucky and other 
States of the Union, until in 1830 her population had increa.sed 
to 3,975; in 1840 to 11.264; in 1850 to 14,083; in i860 to 



134 DIKtCTOKY OF HENDRICKS COUNIY. 



16,963, and in 1870 to 20,277. Her vote has increased at the 
same ratio of the population ; her improvements and weahh 
have more than kept pace ^\'ith her increase in number, and her 
four townships have been subdivided into twelve. Her post 
offices have increased to the number of twenty. Her old Court 
House is no more, but instead she has erected one of the 
finest buildings in the State. Her old log jail has vanished, and 
made room for the building of a home for the Sheriff and a 
place of security for her convicts, which has been done at a cost 
of ;$40,ooo. Her two-roomed poor house has been exchanged 
for a fine, beautiful and expensive asylum, which is an honor to 
the county and a comfort to the destitute. Her two or three 
log school houses are gone, but in their stead she has over one 
hundred fine brick and frame buildings, at a cost of over 
;^ 100,000. Her mud roads are being graveled and turnpiked. 
Her immense forests have been hewn down by the ax of the 
settler, and fine improved farms have taken their place. Her 
eight or ten log cabins have grown to be mansions and nice 
dwellings or beautiful homes for her citizens. Her straw-cov- 
ered rail pens, used for the sheltering of stock, have about gone 
out of existence, and fine barns are supplying their places. 
The wild beasts of the forests have been slaughtered and driven 
from her borders, and the serpent and reptile have been killed 
and destroyed until there are but few to be found. The settler 
no longer stands guard as sentinel to drive the wolf and bear 
from his cabin. 

Then the howl of the wolf the settler cotild hear, 

There were bears, wild cats and varmints ; 
There were scorpions, lizards and serpents to fear, 

To frighten a man out of his garments. 
Now tlie wolf liowl no moi'e do we hear, 

The bhick bear is not here to roam. 
Now no lii.ss of the serpent to create in us fear, 

No varmints molesting our home. 

But for fear that some one may think that the writer has 
snakes in his boots, we will stop here and take a look at the 
present wealth and resources of the county. She now has 
130,000 acres of improved land, valued at over ;^ 12,000,000. 
She has seven thousand five hundred and fifty (7,550) head of 



DIRECTORY OF HENDRICKS COUNTY. 135 

horses, one thousand one hundred and seventy-six (1,176) head 
of mules and asses, five thousand four hundred and ninety-two 
(5,492) milch cows, two hundred and twenty-one (221) work- 
oxen, twenty-one thousand four hundred and sixty (21,460) 
head of sheep, and between thirty and forty thousand head of 
swine. The total estimated value of all live stock is one mil- 
lion six hundred and forty-five thousand seven hundred and one 
dollars. The statistics of 1870 show that she produced in that 
year three hundred and seventy-six thousand nine hundred and 
ninety-two (376,992) bushels of winter wheat, two thousand 
three hundred and nineteen (2,319) bushels of rye, nine hun- 
dred and seventy-five thousand eight hundred and twenty-five 
(975,825) bushels of corn, fifty-three thousand five hundred 
(53,500) bushels of oats, seventy thousand two hundred and 
thirty-three (70,233) pounds of wool, two hundrecl and eighteen 
thousand five hundred and twenty-six (218,526) pounds of but- 
ter, and over twelve thousand tons of hay. The total estimated 
value of all farm productions is one million seven hundred and 
twenty-two thousand eight hundred and thirty-two dollars ($i,- 
722,832). She has one hundred and sixty-six manufacturing 
establishments, consisting of flouring mills, woolen mills, saw 
mills, stave factories, carriage factory, broom factories, furniture 
manufactories, etc. She has forty-two steam engines and one 
water wheel. There are now four railroads in the county, three 
of them span the entire county from its eastern to western boun- 
dary ; the Indianapolis, Bloomington & Western Railroad cross- 
ing her northern border, the Indianapolis & St. Louis the cen- 
ter, the Terre Haute, Vandalia & St. Louis near the south, while 
the Indianapolis & Vincennes crosses the south-east corner, 
whereby travel is made convenient and speedy, and good mar- 
ket at home for all her surplus. 

In 1870 the assessed value of all the taxable property in the 
county was eleven million four hundred and ninety-nine thous- 
and one hundred and seventy-two dollars (;^ 11,499, 172); the true 
value is over twenty million dollars (;^20,ooo,ooo). The amount 
of all taxes for the year 1870 was one hundred and fifty-seven 
thousand five hundred and fifty-seven dollars (^157,557), which 
is divided as follows : Fifty-four thousand four hundred and 



136 DIRECTORY OF HENDRICKS COUNTY. 

fifty-six dollars (;^54,456) is for township and corporation taxes ; 
fifty-two thousand four hundred and twelve dollars (^52,412) 
for county, and the balance, which is fifty thousand six hundred 
and seventy-nine dollars (^50,679), is for State purposes. The 
public debt of the county the same year amounted to thirty- 
eight thousand one hundred and fourteen dollars. All things 
considered, her financial standing will compare favorably with 
the best counties of the State. Her citizens as a class are indus- 
trious, honest and temperate ; there is not a licensed saloon in 
the county, nor has not been for a number of years. In every 
town and village, and at almost every cross road, her church 
spires are to be seen, telling the beholder that this is a liberal, 
intelligent and church-attending people. 



BROWN TOWNSHIP. 



Brown Township is situated in the north-cast corner of the 
County and is bounded as follows : On the north by Boone 
county ; on the east by Marion ; on the south by Lincoln town- 
ship, and on the West by Middle, and contains an area of twen- 
ty-four square miles. The surface of the Township is generally 
level, and the eastern portion wet. The soil is rich and where 
drained is very productive. It is watered by the east branch of 
White Lick creek and School branch. This was one of the last 
settled townships in the county, but is rapidly filling up. The 
present population is 1233. The eastern portion of the Town- 
ship is principally settled by emigrants from Ireland, who seem to 
be honest, economizing and industrious, with more wit and less 
education than any other people that I have found in the County ; 
although some of them have good educations, and all seem de- 
termined to educate their children and are giving them the ben- 
efit of the public schools. The Township is well supplied with 
timber, and at present there are great quantities of staves and 
saw-logs being shipped to other markets. Her school privile- 
ges are good and education is advancing.

CENTRE TOWNSHIP. 



Centre Township is located in the centre of the County and 
contains about forty-four square miles. It is bounded on the 
north by Union and Middle townships ; on the east by Middle 
and Washington ; on the south by Liberty and Clay, and on 
the west by Clay, Marion and Eel River. The surface of this 
township is slightly rolling, with some small blufls or brakes on 
the creeks. It is well watered by White Lick and its branches ; 
Mill creek also takes its rise near the centre of the township 
and runs in a south-west direction, supplying that portion of 
the township with never failing stock water. The soil of the 
township is more or less of a reddish cast and inclined to be 
sandy, but produces well. Her supply of gravel for making 
good roads is almost inexhaustible and her citizens are speedily 
applying it and receiving the benefits. This was the fourth 
township in the County to be settled but now ranks first in point 
ot population and wealth. Some of the first settlers of this 
township were David Matlock, Ross Nichols, Thos. Nichols, 
James L. Givan, James Christie, Wesley McCenley and James 
Thompson. Danville, the county-seat is located about the cen- 
tre of this township and contains about twelve hundred inhabit- 
ants. The present population of the township is 2795. The 
cost of public property located in Centre township is about 
$[85,000, itemized as follows : County Asylum for the Poor, 
oae mile east of Danville on the Indianapolis and Rockville road, 
valued at ^840,000; court house in Danville, ^80,000; sheriff's 
residence and jail, ^38,000; township school houses, ten in 
number, ;^8,ooo; and corporation school property of the town 
of Danville, $20,000. The present township trustee is Alfred 
Welchans ; incorporation trustees, Simon Cradick, Wm. Roman 
and Willis Lockhart. The school and church privileges of 
this township are as good as can be found in the State. Her 
citizens are kind, affable and intelligent. Morality, education

CLAY TOWNSHIP. 



The early settlements of this part of the county were made 

between the years 1825 and 1831, and among those who should 

be held in grateful remembrance by posterity for undergoing the 

privations and hardships of pioneer life, might be mentioned the 

names of George C. Brightman, Josiah Bryant. Caleb Johnson, 

Obadiah Tincher, George Tincher, Nicholas Osborn, William 

Benbow, Newby Hunt, Jesse Hodson, John Cosner, George 

Hancock, John Moon. William Thomas, Thomas Ray, and 

Abraham West. 

ORGANIZATION. 

By an act of the Board of County Commissioners, March 3, 
1845 > Clay township was organized into a separate incorporation, 
and was taken from the townships of Franklin and Marion, and 
contains very nearly twenty-four square miles. The County 
Commissioners at this time were, Gudlow Walker, Ebenezer L. 
Watson and Simon Hornaday. 

IMPROVEMENTS 

There are about ten miles of railroad track extending through 
the township; three miles of the Indianapolis and St. Louis line, 
valued by the appraisement of 1873 at ;^50,4io, and about seven 
miles of the Terre Haute and Indianapolis, valued at $120,115. 
Total value of railroad property $1 70, 525. ' And under the same 
assessment the value of real estate and personal property in the 
tow.isliip was $843,621, making a total of $1,014,246. It will 
therefore appear that the railroad incorporations are liable for 
the payment of about 17 per cent, of the burden of taxation. 

V 

I'OPLTLATION. 

By the census of 1870 there were 1568 persons in the town- 
ship, and the population October 1873, was 1658. That of

EEL RIVER TOWNSHIP. 



Eel River Township i.'^ situated in the north west corner of 
Hendricks county. It is bounded on the north by Boone 
county, on the east by Union and Centre townships, on the 
south by Marion township, and on the west by Putnam and 
Montgomery counties. It contains an area of about 42 square 
miles. The surface of the township is more or less broken, but 
there is no waste land in the township. It is watered b)- the 
waters of Eel river, and almost every farm is supplied with a 
never failing spring, or spring branch- Her soil in the bottoms 
is a rich black loam, and very profitable for corn. Her uplands 
are not so rich, but very profitable for stock raising. This was 
the third township in the county to be settled. Some of the 
first settlers of this township were Noah Bateman, John S. 
Woodward and Reuben Claypoole. Said Bateman and Wood- 
ward are both living, and yet make their home on i'>el river soil. 

For the last few years this township has advanced rapidly in 
wealth, improvement, morality and intelligence. Her [^resent 
population is about 1700. Her church and schc^ol privileges are 
good, and morality and education are on the advance. 

North Salem, the only town in the township is situated a lit- 
tle south of the center. This is a nicel)- located village about 
eight miles north-west of Danville. Its population is about 300 ; 
the inhabitants are sociable and industrious. Its business and 
trading men are numerous and lively. There are three hotels 
here ; all seem to be doing a good business. I know by expe- 
rience that Mrs. Fluce can get up a good square meal.

FRANKLIN TOWNSHIP. 



Franklin township is situated in the southwest corner of the 
county, and is bounded as follows : On the north b}- Clay 
township, on the east by Gilford, on the south by Morgan 
county, and on the west by Putnam, and contains an area of 29 
square miles. The surface of the township lays well for cultiva- 
tion, being" principally level or slightly rolling. The soil is a 
good average for the county, timber and water plenty, and of 
good quality. The model farm of Hendricks county is in this 
township. This farm is the property of Jehue Hadley, and is 
well known to the most of the old settlers of this county, it 
being the farm whereon the old settlers hold their yearly meet- 
ihg. Since the last old settler's meeting Mr. Hadley has made 
some very fine improvements, especially his fish ponds, which 
are very beautiful, ornamental and useful. 

Stilesville, the voting precinct of this townshii). is a ver}^ nice 
thriving business town, located on the National road, about 
twenty-six miles west of Indianapolis and eleven miles south- 
west of Danville, and contains about three hundred inhabitants, 
who are noted for their musical talent and good singing. The 
improvements of the place have been considerable during the 
last year ; they have erected some very nice fine business 
rooms, and one of the best Masonic halls in the count}'. The 
corporation has been liberal in applying gravel to the streets 
and sidewalks, and for other general improvements. The school 
and church priveleges are good.

GILFORD TOWNSHIP. 



Gilford township is situated in the southeast corner of Hen- 
dricks county, and is bounded as follows : On the east by 
Marion county, on the south by Morgan, on the west by Lib- 
erty township, and on the north by Washington. This was the 
first settled township in the count}^ A few of the old pioneer 
settlers that we should hold in remembrance are, David Carter, 
Eleazier Bates, George Moore, Noah Kellum, Robert McCrack- 
en, Jesse Hackett, George Moon, Thomas Lockhart, David, 
Asa and Joel Ballard, Elias Hadley, Josiah Tomlinson and the 
families of Hollingsworth's and Lowder's. The above named 
parties were all settlers of what is now Gilford township before 
the county was organized, and some of them are yet living and 
residents of the township. 

The surface of the township is generally rolling, the soil is of 
very fine quality, and a plentiful supply of gravel for making 
good roads, and timber of sufficient quantity for all necessary 
purposes. The township is watered by the East, West and 
Middle Forks of White Lick Creek, thereby making this the 
best watered township in the county, almost every farm being 
well supplied with stock water. Its rolling surface, sandy soil 
and bountiful supply of stock water makes this rather the most 
inviting township in the county to the stock raiser. 

The trading point and voting precinct of the township is 
Plainfield. This is a nice, enterprising, business place, located 
on the National road and on the St. Louis & Vandalia railroad, 
14 miles we.st of Indianapolis, and contains a population of 
about 800 inhabitants. This place is noted for its quiet, orderly 
citizens, morality and ^temperance. The Society of Friends 
have erected a fine, large church here, and the members of the 
Society from all parts of the State meet here annually to hold 
their Yearly Meetings. As Jerusalem v^^as to the Jews of Pal- 
estine in the days of its prosperity, so is Plainfield to the Society 



DIRECTORY OF HENDRICKS COUNTY. 267 

of Friends of the State ; or in otlier words, Plainficld is the 
Jerusalem of Indiana. 

The Indiana House of Refuge is located on the State farm ad- 
joining Plainfield on the south, and from all appearances it 
seems to be doing a good work for the benefit of the boys who 
are inmates of the institution. This institution is under the 
supervision of Frank B. Ainsworth as general superintendent, 
and C. W. Ainsworth, assistant. They keep everything in 
good order, they are kind to the boys, and are clever and affable 
with a stranger. The Reform School Record is published by 
them. This is a paper of considerable interest, at 50 cents per 
annum.

LIBERTY TOWNSHIP. 



Liberty Township, in the south part of the county, is 
bounded on the north by Centre and Washington townships, on 
the east by Gilford, on the south by Morgan county, and on 
the west by Frankhn and Clay townships. It contains an area 
of about 48 square miles, and is the largest township in the 
county. The surface is generally level or slightly rolling, her 
soil is rich and productive, and is watered by Mud Creek and 
White Lick. Mud Creek flows through the west and southwest, 
while White Lick crosses the northeast corner. This was one 
of the first settled townships in the county, a brief history of 
which is given in the historical sketch of the county. The 
present population of the township is about 25,000. Her 
church and school privileges are rather better than an average 
of the county, and her gravel roads and public improvements 
speak well for the enterprise of her citizens. She is well sup- 
plied with towns and post offices, namely : First, Bellville, the 
voting precinct of the township, situated on the National road, 
18 miles west of Indianapolis, and about six miles south, and 
and I J east from Danville, containing a population of 264. 
This is the oldest town in the county. Cartersburgh, a nice 
little village of about 200 inhabitants, located on the Terre 
Haute, Vandalia & St. Louis Railroad, five miles southwest of 
Danville, 17 miles west of Indianapolis, and one half mile south 
of the Medical Springs. Center Valley, a post office situated 
on the Bellville and Monrovia gravel road, 2J miles south of 
Bellville. Clayton, a thriving little town five miles south of 
Danville, on the Terre Haute, Vandalia & St. Louis Railroad, 
with a popnlation of about 350, noted for its number of neat 
churches, gravel road privileges, and enterprising inhabitants.

LINCOLN TOWNSHIP. 



Lincoln Township, located on the east side of the county, 
contains an area of 24 square miles, and is bounded as follows : 
On the east by Marion county, on the south by Washington 
township, on the west by Middle, and on the north by Brown 
and Middle. The surface is generally rolling, and on the west 
and southwest are a few bluffs and brakes of White Lick Creek. 
The soil is rich, and timber of the best quality in abundance. 
The township is well watered by White Lick, School Branch 
and other small but never failing spring branches. She has a 
good supply of gravel for making good roads, and her roads in 
many places indicate that it is being freely applied. The pres- 
ent population of the township is about 1,580. The population 
as shown by the statistics of 1870, is 1,502. Her only town is 
Brownsburg, located on the I., B. & W. railroad, about 14 miles 
northwest of Indianapolis For improvements, enterprise and 
business, Brownsburg is not surpassed in the county. Her 
school privileges are good, and her four neat churches speak 
well for the liberality and morality of her people. The census 
of 1870 shows her population to be 550, which has increased to 
over 600. The only Catholic Church in the county is located 
here, with a membership of about 500, mostly residents of 
Brown township.

MIDDLE TOWNSHIP. 



Middle township is located in the north part of the county, 
and is bounded on the east by Brown and Lincoln townships, on 
the south by Washington, on the west by Centre and Union, 
and on the north by Boone county; and contains an area of 
about 31 square miles. The surface is generally level, and lays 
well for cultivation. The soil is of fine quality and well adapted 
to the growing of corn. The timber is of the best varieties, 
and of great abundance. This was one of the last townships 
in the county to be settled, but her improvements show that her 
citizens have been of the go-ahead stripe, and wide awake. 

Pittsboro is the only town in the township. This is a nice en- 
terprising little village, located on the I. B. & VV. Railroad, 
about seventeen miles northwest of Indianapolis, and about nine 
miles, nearly in a northeast direction from Danville, and con- 
tains about 250 inhabitants. It is surprising to see the amount 
of business that is done here for so small a place. The 
motto of the citizens of Pittsboro seems to be, " Drive busi- 
ness ; " and from the ring of the anvils, the hum of the mills, 
and the clatter of the stave factory, one would think that they 
were living up to their motto.

MARION TOWNSHIP. 



Marion township is situated on the west side of the county, 
and contains an area of 39 square miles, and is bounded as fol- 
lows : On the north by Eel River township, on the east by Cen- 
tre and Clay, on the south b\- Clay, and on the west by Putnam 
county. The surface is generally rolling and dry, and the soil, 
with a very little exception, good and productive. It is sup- 
plied with stock w^ater by springs and spring branches, tributa- 
ries to Eel River and Mill Creek. It lias but one village — 
namely, New Winchester — which is located a little southwest of 
the center of the township, and six miles west of Danville, and 
contains a population of about 125. The improvements of the 
township are generally good and respectable, and her roads a 
good average of the county. The school privileges of this 
township are good, her school houses well located and nicely 
built, and her citizens interested in the cause of education. Her 
growth of population and wealth will compare favorably with 
other parts of the county. The population of the township, as 
shown by the statistics of 1870, was 1,263.

UNION TOWNSHIP. 



Union Township is situated in the north part of Hendricks 
county, and is bounded as follows : Cn the east by Middle 
township ; on the south by Centre ; on the west by Eel River 
and on the north by Boone county, and contains an area of 
twenty-three square miles. The surface of the township is level 
and lies well for cultivation, and the soil is rich and productive. 
The timber is of good quality and there is plenty of it, especial- 
ly the oak, which is very fine and valuable. This township is 
one of the best in the county for corn raising. There are por- 
tions of the township that are naturally wet and swampy, but 
where drained and ditched it is dry and productive : in fact some 
of the richest and driest farms in the township were twenty-five 
years ago considered swamp land. The citizens are generall)' 
industrious, hospitable and intelligent. Lizton, a small village 
near the center of the township, is located on the I., B. & W. 
railroad, about twenty-three miles north-west of Indianapolis 
and nine miles north of Danville, and is quite an enterprising 
business point.

AN ACROSTIC TO OUR PATRONS. 



When you this book its pages do peruse, 
If a mistake you find we hope you will excuse ; 
Look o'er mistakes and all that's incorrect 
Like gentlemen, from you we this may expect. 
If we have made mistakes don't raise a muss, 
As mistakes happen with the best of us. 
Mayhap the name of some particular friend, 
Can not be found in this book from end to end. 
Likely he would not give his name to us, 
If so he was a rude, contrary cuss. 
Now for your patronage we say to you. 
Each patron has our thanks and friendship too.
